    I wonder sometimes, you know, it is a real disability in some limited contexts. Imagine trying to learn piano or violin if you had fat, stubby fingers? :(

    It'd be kind of odd that he has huge hands with little thumbs, though (as the article describes). You'd think he'd be better off losing some weight and then getting his whole hand reconstructed if it were still a problem.

    Well it might not be the only reason, we probably had this problem for a long time before he got to the breaking point which happen to be with an iPhone.

    Ok, now I thought I was a fan of my iPhone, jeez, I wouldn't start altering my fingers, what if the 2nd Gen screen is totally different.
