    I have no idea. If I had to guess, and this is only a guess, no more accurate than yours, I'd say that because their stylus are so much better than every other one made, and if they're the only place selling them, do the math. They must be doing very well. They advertise they have no competition. I can see why. You try their styluses and you'll understand what a gold mind they have even though their web site is kind of off the wall.

    Stefx, you have a point

    I think such a website design that stylus-r-us uses works both ways depending on mindset. I didn't like the design because it is not organized by product, i.e., these styli are for iPhone use. These are for iPad. Instead you get pictures of beautiful cars. And it turns out those styli are for iPhones.

    Despite that, I went and ordered the nine inch stylus for the iPad. I used my Paypal account to buy it. I can't wait to get it and see how it works versus the Targus Stylus. I have to admit that the Targus is too small for my hand so I don't hold it like a pen or pencil--a little bit longer and it would be perfect.

    Stylus-r-us

    Thanks for the responce, Jack.

    Talk about timing. I just bought 10 stylus' off of Ebay for $9.00, then came to this forum and see this.

    I went to the Stylus-r-us website and to check them out. I found nothing unpleasing about their website, except took awhile to see the price. They certainly have a high opinion of their product.

    I will see how long my cheap stylus' last and divide that out to come up with a time frame to justify getting a Stlus-r-us one.

    But I was intrigued by their claims.

    Does anyone actually have a stylus-r-us and can compare to others?

    It's too bad iPad, iPhone, and iTouch owners have to go thru the buying and trying of all the crappy styluses, like I did, and you all have, to get to the right one, stylus-r-us. Is anyone in there? Can anyone hear me? So what if their web site sucks! So what if it’s weird looking? Their styluses are unreal and they invented this really cool HOME BUTTOM replacement that is so much better than the sunken one that comes on the device. Because I bought my stylus there, and asked for the Home Buttons. they sent me two free for my iPad and iPhone. Otherwise you have to buy them for I can't remember: Ten or fifteen bucks which seems like allot, they make a huge difference in the operation of both devices. Listen: Do you all have money to blow or what? Stop buying all that other crap. This company is awesome!!

    Mr Homes...it's Cindy? Didn't you see my post at the top? I have three of them. The Roger iWand which is ommmmggg. The Maserati, I use on my iPhone, and sometimes on my iPad, and I just received my new Camry and ommmggg do I ever hurt for all of you. Seriously. It's like that weird web site says on the first page, we're all caught up in the buying and trying scam of the other styluses, only to hate and toss them. And like they also say, it's just a matter of time before you buy from that stylus-r-us site. Their stuff is unreal cool.

    This thread is filled by a sudden flurry of new members showing a fanboyist-like over-enthusiastic support for this new product which seem beyond the normal reaction of normal consumers faced with a good product.

    Nothing personal against the people at Stylus-R-Us, but I will wait to hear for opinions from trusted members that have been on this board for some time. It's not about PayPal knowledge, it's about being a cautious consumer.

    No, Stefx, it isn't about PayPal

    IT IS ABOUT PRODUCT! If you have a problem with using a credit card to buy something on an unknown website, there are alternatives such as PayPal that protect you. That is why I mentioned PayPal.

    I do not work for Stylus-r-us. But if I find that their product is better than the Targus stylus that I currently own, I'll certainly report my findings to far kinder members of the forum who really want to know. It's about being able to find a product that will endure and works as advertised.

    I'm sorry YOU got reprimanded by stylus-r-us' CEO. Companies are created to provide a consumer requirement. They have a lot invested in their product and their reputation. Errant and seemingly innocuous remarks on an Internet forum can bring down a company so fast that they have to respond as aggressively as they can. In that sense, it is personal.

    Reply. Remember you said that when you get yours and you WILL be getting one. Mark those words. The hype by your friends has just begun. As to the sudden support - don'[t read anything into that but the typical conversation by people who know something about a product, you know nothing about. As far as trusted members go, don’t forget you were once a newbe and had your first post. First post of enthusiasm isn’t at all suspicious, Put the fishing pole away and buy one of their styluses if you can stand the pitiful colors of that site long enough and you'll be one of the boasting ones with apologies.
