The Chubby Fingered and Long Nailed Among Us Demand iPhone Design Changes


We must’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning or something, because here’s another piece of writing that has us upset. We’d heard little flitters about this here and there, in between all the initial hubbub last year, but when seeing the whole collection of complaints put together in “The iPhone Fingernail Problem,” it kinda makes us want to yell at something. Basically, the story boils down to a number of people complaining that the iPhone is a) unfair to people with large fingers and, even more ridiculously b) somehow misogynistic because it’s hard to use if you have really long fingernails. So, obviously, these people want Apple to go in and redesign the absurdly popular device to fit their unique needs. Really, you’ll enjoy reading the whole thing a lot more if you play banjo music in the background and read each quote slowly and using your best yokel accent.
