LYNKtec sent me the TruGlide Pro Precision Stylus & Paintbrush Tip Bundle which includes both tips and a handy storage tin. Let’s take a quick look.

In the earlier days of PDAs and other small handheld devices, everything had a stylus and everything had a silo to hold it when you weren’t using it.  Most tablets and smartphones today don’t come with a stylus, and you’re left trying to find a way to keep up with it if you use one.Read More…
