    Despite Steve Jobs' famous quote that "Nobody wants a stylus!" it appears that Apple might be considering one for the iPad or iPhone. A new patent was recently filed by the Cupertino company which is obviously a stylus variant. Apple's vision for a stylus seems to go well beyond the norm. It includes an extendable nib. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    It's an intriguing idea, but it's also possible we won't actually see it for a long while, if ever. There were rumors that they were planning it to go along with their iPad Pro 12-inch tablet, but that project has likely be shelved for the foreseeable future. What do you think? Would you want an Apple branded super-stylus over the options available today?

    Steve Jobs would not have liked this idea. But this idea may be genius. Basically people won't be looking fir anymore stylus anymore. They will just have to buy straight from the apple store. This will help apple earn more cash.

    I have two stylus's that are just fine. I would. It pay the bucks that I am ASSUMING Apple will want for their stylus. However, I am thinking that it would depend on what people use their iPads for. If you are an artist, I would think it might be helpful and worth it. Again, just like apps, an accessory is only worth what the user needs, and each value is dependent upon that.

    From above, "I would. It pay the bucks" should have been "I would not pay the bucks..."


    I never seem to spot the errors until after posted and I could not edit this post. Seriously, I am a very fast accurate typist on a keyboard, just terrible on an iPad/iPhone. Not meant to start a discussion.
