Targus = Griffin as far as I am aware. I think it's important to practise (read: too poor for extensive stylus experimentation ) I've used a Targus stylus (two actually, one for home and one for work) for nine months. I do a lot of writing, drawing and mathematics with it every day. Using it has become easier and easier and (imo) I can get very good results. Sure, it has a fat tip, but somehow my eyes and fingers have learnt to deal with it. Some people have complained that this brand of stylus drags too much on the screen. I never had this problem until about two weeks ago when the nib started to intermittently get sticky. As this was only happening on my much more heavily used work stylus I concluded that it must be wearing out. (Some people suggested I should clean the stylus, but I never did). Lo and behold, the problem has vanished as mysteriously as it appeared. The Jot stylus looks very appealing but I'm put off by the lack of a clip. The Targus I use at work is either in my hand or between my teeth (!) or clipped very securely to my shirt pocket, with no lid to screw on or off 50 times a day. If I ever have to buy another stylus it will probably be another Targus. I use Note Taker HD, neu.Notes +, IDraw and ArtStudio.
