iPad Pens

My favorite item of this year is my gorgeous little iPad (3). I take it everywhere...

The calendar is so much bigger than on my cell phone. It can grasp so much more information. I can read ebooks and papers for my classes, make notes in my pdfs either by typing or handwriting. I do my photo editing on it, as you might have seen :) When I first heard about tablet PCs, I thought I would never need them... but now I can hardly imagine my life without one. I even take notes for my classes or meetings with my advisors. For that handwriting part I bought 10 pens from China. They can be used for capacitive screens. Since resistive screens are operated by pressure, they don't really need pens, anything pointy will do.



Anyway... I bought 10 pens because they were so cheap on ebay (<< click >>), only 2.80 € (3.45$), especially compared to the ridiculous price of 40€ which I found via a short google search. I think that was for the original Stylus Pens but it's not that expensive anymore - I even saw some on Tchibo recently (<< click >>) but still 12.95 € for only one pen... I gave three pens to my friends (2 gold and one blue pen). The rest is somewhere in my purses and on my desk. Since I ordered these pens from Hong Kong, it takes about a month until they got here. German customs are very strict but for such low price items, you don't have to worry about paying for customs.

I think, they are really great. They allow me to have more control over my writing compared to just using my finger. I even sign pdfs with them :) it's so convenient and sooo so much better than printing.
