Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

I suppose I could try it... but I have big fat fingers. the last thing I want to see is how detailed notes and diagrams show up on a touch screen. I have trouble pressing touch screen buttons accurately.

Maybe they've come up with some super technology that can detect my finger nail or something...

For the older Ipods, there was mits or gloves with conductive fabric on the finger tips so one didn't need to removed there gloves when skiing and such. If this has the same conductive sensing in the screen then that fabric wrapped around a stylus should give you a nice pencil point.

You can buy a stylus that works on the iPhone for 50 cents ... I bet it will work on this too ... personally I prefer keyboard/fingers but that's just me.
