Using a frozen sausage as iPhone stylus

Using an iPhone in the cold presents a quandry. You don’t want to freeze your fingers, but gloves make the touchscreen difficult to use. Unless you’ve got Dots Gloves.

Or sausages.

In South Korea, CJ Corporation noticed a sharp increase in sales of their frozen sausages. Not because they’re especially tasty, because cold commuters have discovered that they make an effective iPod stylus. It seems that they’re electrostatically compatible with the iPod’s touch screen, and nearly as effective as using a human finger.

The folks at TUAW said they were going to try something from Jimmy Dean. They must be vegans or sumpin’. I don’t know of anything that Jimmy sells that is the right shape.

Now – Slim Jims? That might be just right.
