A nice little bonus of the IR touchscreens on the Kobos is that you can use it while wearing gloves...

Assuming you mean Celcius.. Otherwise you're very comfortable with cold weather.. 15F would be below freezing.

I don't think I could get used to gloves, it would feel kind of weird, I guess I need to feel the contact with my Glo, in other words I need to be intimate with it ...

I had no problems today at about 5C out (easily glove temperatures). Now, if it were below freezing, it might be a different matter.
