Two part post, don’t worry they are related. First, using a stylus with the iPad is pretty silly! But this Wacom Bamboo Stylus might not be. Not only does it have the Wacom name behind it, but the Bamboo Stylus has a tip (9mm) that’s 25% narrower than most other stylii, which should help make the Bamboo Stylus more accurate.
Also! It’s supposed to feel like a high-end pen in terms of weight and finish, which should make the writing and drawing motion feel more natural. Or at least better than using a piece of plastic. The Bamboo stylus also work with other capacitive tablets too and will cost $30 when it releases in mid-May.
