Bloody Hell! :shock:

I've not had any personal experience of touch screens.

But they sure must be tough.

Put on a raincoat and go take a long walk in them. Those puppies will take a few miles to break in, and no reason you can't start now. Better to start the breakin and to get used to the lacing, fit, adjustable tongue, etc. on short local hikes than to get blisters on a major climb.

I figured he had enough of giving all his money to apple, so was about to pin the screen to the wall.
