Styluses

cleanstylus

Using a stylus with your Android, iPad and Microsoft Surface Pro tablets is perfect for note taking and drawing. But the one feature lacking in 99% of tablets is that there's no place to store the stylus when you're not using it. So it ends up at the bottom of your bag or is easily lost. [...]

sensu-buddy

Minimalists like to pride themselves on being able to get by with the least amount of gear possible. That means carrying both a stylus and a pencil would be one writing implement too many. A possible solution to this problem is the Sensu Buddy Stylus. The Buddy Stylus is a specially designed capacitive stylus cap [...]

pdapanache

It's been over 10 years since we have talked about a new stylus from PDA Panache. Back in 2004 and earlier, Judie and I reviewed many of their iconic orange tipped styluses for our Palm Pilots and Pocket PC PDAs. Those were the good old days when device screens were resistive instead of capacitive. Back when [...]

xoopar-3-in-1-stylus-2

The Xoopar 3 in 1 Stylus is a multi-function tool, but it doesn't have a  ballpoint pen inside like most multi-function styluses do.  The Xoopar has a capacitive stylus on one end, and a screen cleaner on the other end.  Pop the barrel apart, and you'll find a sync and charge microUSB cable which would [...]

13) Easy Flow

I like pens.  Beats the heck out of carving pictograms into rock.  You know, take a harder rock and scrape it against the softer rock.  The process is tedious but the results do last a long time.  Pens make it a lot easier and, as everyone knows, they are mightier than swords.  If only Ned [...]

Nonteverde Tool Pen-1

I am not much of a pen to paper writer, I use my iPad to write as much as possible. But I do own pens for those occasions when I do need to write something. So, for me to want to review a pen it has to be a little different in either design or [...]

l-tech-stylus-pen

Larry's recent go-to gadget discussion of his old Rotring pen reminded me that Levenger has a pen that's a bit reminiscent of those pens, but they cost much less than some of those old Rotrings on the secondary market.  Turns out that Levenger is having a sell this weekend on their L-Tech Plus Stealth Ballpoint [...]

lynktec-truglide-apex-1

Back in the good old days of PDAs, fine tipped styluses were everywhere. When PDAs were replaced by smartphones and tablets, styluses went on the endangered gadgets list . However, it didn't take too long for them to start appearing again, but they all had wide tips that made writing with them feel more like you [...]
