    Am I the only one that has to keep their nails long in order to type on the pre? It is some what frustrating because with the job I have there is a lot of meet and greet handshakes.

    I do tend to type with my thumb nails, but I don't have to keep them what I consider long to do so.

    Why are you clawing people in a handshake? Maybe make you hand a little more open when moving into the handshake and anticipate the release a little sooner.

    I don't have particularity long nails, but I may be compensating my bending my thumbs at steeper angles to the keys. Try trimming a nail down and pressing keys at a steeper angle to see if you can get use to it.
    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

    For me, it's the opposite. I have no trouble typing with short nails, and I find it harder to use the touchscreen when my nails get too long.

    The steep angle technique works for me,
    either that or i have fingers like a 3 year old child.

    biting my fingernails has come in handy for me (and my mom said it was a bad habit) I have no problem typing thaks to that!

    I used to type with my nails but have gotten used to typing with the tips of my thumbs

    haha great post! I keep my fingernails a bit long but not excessively so. There's usually just a bit of white at the ends-- perfect for typing on the Pre but nobody in their right mind would call my nails long.
