HAND Stylus


The problem with the new “smart” touch-screen tech is that some of us have chubby little fingers. Selecting one item on the iPhone is work; selecting the right item is a crapshoot. Yeah, I know, the late Steve Jobs thought no one would want to use a stylus. He was only partially right. Some of us want a stylus, but not the usual stubby, as-hard-to-use-as-fingers kind. Enter the HAND Stylus, designed by Steve King of Alameda, Calif. It feels like an extremely high-quality ballpoint pen and has a retractable stylus tip, which is exceptionally small and precise. The HAND Stylus is $29.95, and a six-pack of extra tips costs $9.95.
