Stylus for iPhone/iPod touch costs $25, defeats purpose

Linux 'phone' does just about everything

When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone, he made his feelings about stylus use pretty clear by saying something to the effect of "Who wants a stylus? Yuck. We’ll use the best pointing device in the world, our fingers."

I share an equal disdain for the stylus and I find that even my fat fingers work well enough on my iPod touch. Some people don’t, though. If you’ve always wanted a stylus for your iPhone or iPod touch, here’s one for $25.

That might sound like a lot of money for a stick, but it’s a stick made of "a lightweight aluminum alloy, with an anodized finish in your choice of three colors" and includes laser-engraved graphics and "a soft, durable tip designed with the needs of mobile users in mind." Plus, there’s that clip thing that holds it in place.

Shipping starts at $3.50 for USPS or $9.99 for UPS Ground, so try not to misplace it.
