If you give a mouse a mitten ... he'll want a Blackberry

Today hit a high of only 44°F, and tomorrow is expected to be the same. This first cold snap of the year is sending people running for gloves and mittens. But with the huge usage of iPhones and Blackberries on campus, this could cause a problem. To text or to be mildly chilly: truly a question for our age.

Luckily Vivian Weng ’05 and her brother Edward Weng ’10 have a solution for that problem. They have developed the Mittenberry, a mitten with removable thumb covers to let you type away. They come in three different colors and cost $24.99 for a pair.

Best of all, they serve multiple purposes. Cold-weather thumb wars, anyone?
