Drawing on the iPad: 12 touchscreen styluses reviewed Review
See how these 12 compare to other styluses: Check out our in-depth iOS stylus charts. Steve Jobs may hate the idea of using a stylus on his touchscreen devices, but the fact remains that some consumers simply prefer an intermediary accessory for interaction. Whether it’s too cold outside for direct contact, you’re worried about touchscreen germs, or you need a sketching tool, sometimes a stylus can be a good thing. Accessory manufacturers seem to agree, having produced a plethora of styluses for Apple’s iOS devices. As some people know, in my not-so-secret other life, I enjoy drawing cartoons. Since I bought my first iPad back in April 2010, I’ve been using the device for quite a bit of my scribbling and coloring—most of that with Ten One Design's Pogo Sketch. Note that, as of yet, Apple does not provide access to software APIs that might allow for pressure sensitivity on the iPad.

Apple Rumors: The MacBook Pro Shrinks, iPad And iPhone Grow I suspect we’ll have to start picking and choosing our Apple rumor posts carefully in the coming months as the speculations begin flying fast and free, but until then a bit of gossip portending the next year’s changes won’t hurt anybody. iLounge is hawking some intel from their “most reliable source,” who claims to have the inside scoop on Apple’s upcoming revisions. It’s nothing mind-blowing, but it might be enough to make you unconsciously start saving money. The MacBook Pro redesign we’ve heard about before. Other sources have it rolling out in March, but supply line data is unreliable unless bulk orders are indicated.

iPen: the first active stylus for iPad! by Cregle Inc. The Cregle iPen transforms the iPad into a content creation device, not just a content consumption device. iPen is the first active digitizer stylus that allows you to write with precision directly on the iPad. Unlike the passive digitizer used in the typical iPad stylus, iPen writes like a real pen with accurate positioning and palm rejection features that passive products simply cannot achieve. With the Cregle iPen’s active digitizer, the attached receiver picks up the iPen’s signal and its precise position as it hovers above the screen (whereas a passive stylus can be located only when the user touches the screen).

Preparing your Lion repair kit Reader Mike Kohler seeks to update his troubleshooting kit now that he’s moved to Lion. He writes: I installed Lion last week on my year-old iMac. I like to be prepared for disaster but with Lion I’m not sure what tools I should have. Can you help?

Thanks for your comment. Just ordered the long Nomad Brush. The Nomad "Compose" looked interesting but there were some negative comments about the angle of the very short tip. Anyway, Amazon removed it from their site before I returned to order. It was not to be available until the 17th. Perhaps the reason for removal. Have learned to order from Amazon when you find something. Usually when you return the price has increased. I did say "usually". :-) Thanks again. by iquitoz Dec 15

Yes, it was the Nomad. It is a fun gadget that looks the part, so maybe there is some psychological benefit, however, it really just comes down to which program you are using and which brushes you use, if it detects angles or not, etc...don't you think? I like the feel of it in my hand. by lkatmat Dec 2

Hello, lkatmat. Was the "brush" like stylus a Nomad? If it was, I would like to know which model you ordered and how you like it. Thank you. by iquitoz Nov 21

Have used the Pogo Sketch for about one year. The tip material eventually became compressed and began falling off. It became nearly unusable but that be expected with use. Now trying the Kuel H10 with a hollow "rubber" tip. A little short even when barrel is extended. Response is nice. by iquitoz Nov 21

Good review, great examples, we understand in a short time. by sandrarlockwood Nov 20

I have the Wacom Bamboo and I agree it is the best. I haven't tried the Adonit Jot Pro. I googled it and it does seem interesting. I just ordered the one that is like a watercolor brush (I forget the name) but haven't received it yet. I am interested in the feel of this one. by lkatmat Nov 18

Good review, great examples and descriptions of how they performed under use. Would have liked to see the Adonit Jot Pro included. I like the heft and feel, but the Wacom Bamboo might still be best. by kenkiyomi Nov 3
