      As a fellow large fingered individual, I think this would rock. Otherwise my friends my think I'm messaging in Welsch.

      That looks like it'd work with yer sausages, Jason.

      Steve Jobs needs to bulk up a bit more and then he'd understand why, sometimes, a stylus really is needed by fatty fingered folk.

      There's this one ages-old Mad magazine where they show made-up inventions. One of them was a small index you could put on top of your index finger to use on calculators and stuff with small buttons... Maybe not such a stupid invention after all :-)

      The Nintendo DS has a few similar gadgets which can be purchased at games stores. Either way, I guess that wouldn't work here since the finger needs to have contact with the iPhone to register. Jobs said that they try to figure out what you were trying to write based on the surrounding letters and the words that make sense, so I'd wait to see whether it works with bigger fingers before getting too worried.

      would also be good for those of us who have develoeped super-thumb ability with our crackberries.

      I can't believe you have time for this shit, Jason.

      I don't, actually. It was just a nice diversion :D

      It didn't take very long anyway.

      It looks like it would be kind of difficult to hold and type that way. No landscape keyboard is no big deal to me. Good mockup though.

      This is a simple software update, and consumers of the iPhone will demand it!

      A widescreen virtual thumbboard could work really, really well. I know because I wrote one for 480x320 Palm OS devices (that's the same resolution as the iPhone, BTW). Here's how it looks:

      Fantastic idea! I hope Apple jumps on this.
