cheese curls vs screen

There you are, happily eating some delicious junk food - which, like most junk food, leaves massive finger residue - when the phone rings. Or you get a text. But your fingers are full of grease. Or powder. (Or some combination of the two, if your snack of choice happens to be donuts, and/or cheese curls.) This is what we mean when we worry about the effects of technology on modern society.
But here's the question: what is your course of action? Finish the snack, wash your hands thoroughly and then pick up the device? Or do you just grab for it, all greasy and grubby-fingered?
No judgment. We're all friends here. I'll be the first to admit that my interaction with my own tablet is not exactly a model of hygiene.
As an aside, we must ask: Why are touch screens so bad at touch? As in, the actual human part of human-computer interaction. We get our hands diiiirty. This is how we interact with our surroundings: Poke. Grab. Smear. Repeat.
Seriously: a pack of wet wipes should be attached to the back cover of any mobile device.
But until that great day arrives, we have got you covered - literally! - with these cool Opera-logo reusable screen wipes. Stick one on the back of your phone (tablet, hey, put it on your laptop, go to town), pull it off when that big ol' screen needs a cleaning, rub it back to a smudge-free condition, and then stick the wipe right back on again.
have had about 40 of these to give away... so hit me up with a private message if you want one... and make sure to include your mailing address! but I have already gotten way more than 40 responses so the entry period is now closed. Thanks to everyone for participating!
