Women With Long Finger Nails Complaining That iPhone Is Sexist
Every application within the iPhone was specifically designed to be accessible with your fingertip. The touchscreen detects your body's electrical charge when it comes in contact with the device, enabling it to determine where you pressed. As a result, fingernails (especially of the glued-on variety) tend to get in the way while using the iPhone, which is irritating some women profusely.
Some women are calling for the iPhone to be redesigned to include stylus-control capability (as on some Windows Mobile and Palm Treo devices), but we're more inclined to think that long fingernails went out in the early '90s and that modern devices require modern manicures -- like the meticulously pristine digits used in Apple's advertising.
