    During a recent winter trip to Yuma, Arizona where the wind and dust are a problem, I git a deep scratch on my screen. Before that I never had a problem, so did not have a screen protector. Now that it is there, it is creating a rough spot when I handwrite with my Jot stylus. I really don't want to abandon that stylus, so I am looking fir a way to mechanically fill the scratch. A wax polish of some sort?

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks.

    Short of replacing the screen, your best choice would be a screen protector. It would cover the scratch so the stylus doesn't catch on the scratch.

    My ipad2 has several similar "war wounds". I quite like them.

    Excellent idea! I had earlier thought that it would be something like locking the proverbial barn door after the flight of the horse, but your point about it letting the stylus glide is a good one that had not occurred to me.

    Thanks.

    P.S. I just got a Zagg HD screen protector put on. It does solve the scratch drag problem. Thanks again.
