The iPhone fingernail problem

“Considering ergonomics and user studies indicating men and women use their fingers and nails differently, why does Apple persist in this misogyny?”

Really? Misogyny? Wow. I mean, yeah. Apple hates women. They don’t create products specifically geared toward them or anything.

I suppose people whose fingers are too large to use the iPhone should claim discrimination.

Watson-Currie hasn’t been impressed by the reviews and thinks Apple should offer a stylus on principle. Why not just cut her fingernails? “It’s the machine’s job to accommodate its users, not the other way around,” she said.

Nevermind the fact that the machine doesn’t accomodate shit and that Apple does. If you’re 5′0 and want to drive an Expedition, I suppose the SUV should shrink to your size so you can see over the wheel. If you’re lactose intolerant, I suppose Wendy’s should make you a frosty with soy milk. Those sound ridiculous, don’t they? Being short or lactose intolerant aren’t even things you choose to do. Long nails? Your choice. You deal with it.

  1. There are lot of injustices in this world. This is one I just don’t see. Deal with it, ladies. Frito nails are out anyway…

    I figured you’d back me up. They do kinda look like Fritos, now that I think about it.

    BTW, your URL is still a wordpress.com url.

  2. this is why I loath anything apple makes

    I’m not a Mac supporter or anything, and really the only Apple product I have is the iPod, but I’m not even blaming Apple for this one bit.

  3. I love my iPhone. Best I’ve ever had…and weekly manicures. What are they talking about? Acrylic nails? Who can do anything with those Dragon Empress talons.

    Why am I not surprised that you have an iPhone? I mean that in a positive way.

  4. I don’t think there’s actually any milk in a frosty.

    In the ice cream there is. Perhaps I should have been more clear.

  5. See I had 3 ipod nanos in one week – nothing to do with fingernails though – they were crap, I took them back — I love my new Sansa Fuze – no freezing and easy!

    Sansa Fuze? Sounds like a Sobe drink.
