What? You have an iPad? Holy moly… after all your thread-crapping when the first iPad came out, you actually got one?

Don't listen to the resident curmudgeon, a decent stylus can do far more than just an ol' chubby finger when it comes to sketching on the iPad.

Not so swell if you eat and use the iPad at the same time. Cheese Doodles can be especially troublesome as are greasy fries or poutine....

The Targus stylus I picked up from BestBuy for ~$16 works great; though I have no comparison with others.

At home I use it for drawing and quick sketches (typically with SketchBook) and at work it's used for notes in PenUltimate and filling in PDF forms. With a large, somewhat squishy tip, it takes a bit of practice to be precise, but has worked fine for the past month and a half for me.

I'm in for a pair at $50 including world wide shipping too!
Hopefully this will arrive before the Ipad 3 arrives - lol.
This will begin the full on assault on eliminating paper for and taking class notes etc.

Not sure exactly when they'll arrive, but it sounds like they're not shipping before the fundraising campaign is over (15 days still left to go).

In the mean time, I still have 95% of the sheet of conductive foam I bought.

Look into oStylus. I bought one a while back and it works flawlessly.

I've seen reviews of those but I was skeptical. Glad to hear from an actual user. I will put it on my wish list!

I backed the Estylo on Kickstarter, the project received over 10x the funding asked for. They have started to delivered (to some). The Estylo isn't available in stores (yet- if ever), but it is an interesting tool compared to everything else available.
Made of painted wood. Very light, very pencil-like, and almost the length of a real pencil. Both ends work. Very nice design, the package alone was a thing of beauty.

I think this product is quite good but will probably fail due to the business side of the venture. Some could show up intermittently on eBay in a few weeks-to-months, or maybe directly from the maker.
