Thumb war on texting while driving

Best Buy launches its online streaming movie service, Hotmail gets a little hotter, and thumb gloves that are meant to stop texting while on the road.

I would like to give two thumbs up to the thumb sock. Although I wonder if it is too hot to wear thumb gloves now that summer is upon us?

Sure this is gimmicky. And silly. And certainly it wouldn't hinder texting on a phone with physical keyboard phone. But it may serve as a reminder that texting on the road is lethal. And stupid. Don't do it.
