    I bought the new Penultimate app. I need a stylus for notes. Should I make my own? With tin foil and a pen? Or is there a place i can buy one in person in Boston MA perhaps? I love the App btw! Don't forget there is an option for wristguard protection on there.

    You can get the Targus pen at any Best Buy or just order one. You would look real silly using a $500+ device with a ghetto homemade pen.... just my $.02:D

    Thanks, I will look into that one. I'd be using it at school too

    I made one out of copper pipe and conductive foam.

    Look around for thin neoprene cycling gloves.

    You can use a "Scotch Brite" sponge by 3M

    Found some online.
    But it was $4, the handling $5, and shipping $10.

    Try using your iPad while resting your wrist on the screen and you'll understand why.
