Yep. I spend my days looking after 28 horses (give of take) and spend a lot of time gloved. Capacitive screens are a royal pain in the Rs.
I dont think that anyone is implying they always wear gloves and hence find it difficult to use an iphone capacitive screen. I believe the point is that it seems wierd that occassionally when you are on the move (that is when you would mostly have a glove on) and you want to use your phone, you have to go through the pain of taking your gloves off before you can do anything on capacitive screen and then put it back on. And on the iphone, even calls are answered through a slider on the screen. Imagine the phone is ringing and you are rushing to take the gloves off in time before the caller gives up and disconnects.
But now this pain is not limited to iphones only. The i8910 has a capacitive screen and finally Nokia has also given in and introducing capacitive screens. I believe the 1st one is the X6. So this rant should now be for capacitive screens in general and not specific to the iphone, even though it debuted on the iphone and was exclusive to it for a long time.
