DailyDirt: Styli Are Getting Better

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Microsoft's new tablet computer was announced with a bit of fanfare -- and curiously, a stylus. When Apple introduced its touchscreens (not counting the Newton), Steve Jobs dismissively tossed away the idea of using a stylus and said the finger is the best pointing device around. Well, stylus technology is getting better all the time, and here are just a few examples of some styluses/styli that might beat the finger. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Who wants a stylus? I do, or at least I wouldn't mind having the option to take one out when I needed. The only thing I miss about my old Treo is the stylus. Fat, greasy fingers are the best pointing device around? Hardly, the stylus gives you pin point accuracy that is quite handy for certain things, one in particular being trying to navigate miniature menus and click on tiny links while web browsing.
