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 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.
