    Question Can't "Touch" With Gloves

    Advertisement



    Just discovered that I can't activate or wake up the screen with a gloved hand, or through a thin glove liner, or through a paper towel for that matter. Seems it has to be a warm-blooded FINGER. Now what? Any ideas?

    No, it has to be something that can conduct electricity...it's a capacitive screen.

    OK, it works with my nose.

    Can I put something on my glove finger to make it work? A metallic fabric?

    Nope. Licking it doesn't work. Or were you just telling me to see if I would do it? Or if my tongue froze to the glove?

    Yep, found the gloves. Anyone know what the mystery fabric is? What might conduct and click?

    And Thanks, you jokers.
