I’ve tried lots and lots and lots stylii (styluses?) over the years. From some of the original Pogo Sketch models (which I still keep as backup) to the new brush-like models like the BRVSH and I have had some favs (like the Pogo Sketch Pro, which I wore out—or my nephew chewed through), but all of them have been lacking a bit. Some don’t have the right heft, some don’t have a pen clip, others don’t have tips that aren’t precise or responsive, essentially I was still seeking the best yet. When I saw the HAND Stylus on Kickstarter I backed it right away. A retractible nib that even rotates a little bit as you retract it so the tip wears evenly. Precision-made aluminum body like a good mechanical pencil. Pen clip that works with the iPad Smart Cover. It seemed perfect. It took a long, long while to get to me, but it was certainly worth the wait.
Apple is widely expected to unveil the smaller and cheaper iPad, unofficially dubbed iPad mini at $249-$299 price point at the media event on October 23.
Apple is known to not let the possibility of cannibalisation of its own products come in the way of bringing out new, and on many occasions radically different products to the market. The MacBook Air cannibalised the sales of traditional desktops and notebooks, the iPad cannibalised sales of Macs and so on.
Analysts have now started adjusting their iPad sales estimates, taking into account the imminent iPad mini release. According to their estimates, the smaller device would no doubt sell in great numbers during the holiday season, but it won’t carve the entire market without affecting the 9.7″ iPad’s sales numbers.

The iPad has enjoyed tremendous success since its release in 2010. It has increasingly found uses in the working lives of professionals from varied fields like enterprise, medical, education, hospitality and now sports.
A new patent that was granted to Apple few days back revealed that it is working on technology that could allow iOS devices to be charged wirelessly.
But London-based Tanveer Islam didn’t want to wait for Apple to introduce the feature in future iOS devices, so he has figured out a way to hack his iPhone 4S to charge it wirelessly using Powermat.
A new study conducted by non-profit organization Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. (EPRI) found that on an average an iPad will consume less than 12 kWh of electricity per year, amounting to a cost of only $1.36.
That’s less than what you’d normally spend on an app, or what you’d pay at your favorite coffee shop.
