Can't Write With Your Finger?

Do you have an iPad (or even an iPhone, I suppose) and want to doodle?  Or have a client sign a work order, purchase order or something else equally useful?  Do you *really* want to do this with a finger, or a pen?

Well, Ten One Design have released 2 styli that will work with the capacitive screens on the iPad and iPhone.  Their Pogo Stylus and Pogo Sketch are able to let you use the iPad like a real tablet.  They both allow you to draw, sign and otherwise write on your iPad with a normal pen-like device.

Also, there's the Capacitive Styra that also does a similar job, with the added bonus of a real pen cartridge in it as well, for those folks who occasionally need to go old school and use paper.  :)

Dagi in Taiwan has a few different models that look rather interesting, too.

Another option, of course, is to cut off someone's finget and mount it on a stick, and as we're in the Australian Winter right now, that's an option - but this would be an issue during the Australian Summer, I'd think.  :)
