Wow! I just got mine in the mail today. I have replaced my pen and paper with Noteshelf and stylus. I have ordered the box wave and targus stylus which worked good. This 2nd generation stylus works AWESOME. It is the same length as a pen, in which I feel the most comfortable to write with, the tip is still the rubber tip but a little thinner making it feel more natural to write with. I recommend this to anyone who is using iPad as their note taking device.
