    Duo Digital: touchscreen for laptops and LCD's

    PNF (Pen And Free Co.) released the Duo, so you can turn your laptop into a touchscreen without ripping it apart. You just install the receiving station on top or on the side of your screen, define the area you want to use as a tablet and that’s all. However, you have to use a stylus to operate. The laptop version supports up to 15.4″, the monitor version to 22″. Oh and it… Read More

    CrunchDeals: Pogo stylus half off (today only)

    Back in December of 2007, I brought you news of the Pogo stylus for the iPhone and iPod Touch. I remarked that the initial price of $25 sounded a bit expensive for an aluminum stick and that a stylus sort of defeats the purpose of the iPhone/iPod Touch. Some of you agreed with me and some of you made a good point that the Pogo would work well in the wintertime (assuming you don’t buy… Read More

    Brando hanging Bluetooth headset and stylus: Like a marriage of fish, bicycle

    For those who find it difficult to separate their “writing on a screen time” from their “talking to humans” time, Brando has a $30 Bluetooth stylus that doubles as a phone headset. That’s right: you can tap away on whatever you use that still uses a touch screen while talking. Clearly whether to pull your stylus out of your device or buy a smaller headset is… Read More

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

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

    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… Read More

It incorporates the TruePic III image sensor (just like its more… Read More
