About a week ago I ordered a 3 pack of styluses for my iPad, and they arrived today. I know it's a little odd to get a stylus for a fingertip friendly screen, but my experiences with the autograph systems at BEA have shown me that there are times I'm going to want one.
I got mine off Amazon for under $2. They're cheap junk, but that works for me. I will almost certainly lose them.My one regret is that they're not longer. An extra inch or 2 would have been nice. If you look closely at the photo you'll see the red stylus attached to a strap. That's where I'm planning to store the stylus.
I know there are hardly any apps that would make a stylus worthwhile, but I'm hoping that will change.
