I just bought a targus stylus for my iPad, to take advantage of the bamboo notepad app. I always had in mind that a stylus was just a gadget not really needed when you can use your fingers instead. Man, was I wrong! It's really great for note taking and sketching, but amazing for browsing the net, navigating thru apps, etc... No more finger prints on my screen, no more fingers hiding text or display... And when you need your fingers, just put it aside, and take it back when done. I must say that this "gadget" is a must. At first, it felt like going back to my old Palm M130, but after a few minutes, you can see the benefit of using a stylus. Great for... - browsing in safari - sketching or drawing - notes - logic or card games - highlighting or selecting text - news reading, or any apps that just requires to follow a link on a single "click" - remote to a PC via vnc/RDP A bit pricy for a simple stick, but so handy... VicoPad addict!
