For the first 8 months of iPad usage, my laptop went to almost nothing. Lately, since getting an iPhone, my usage of both iPad and iPhone has gone off the chart as I try o get a handle of sycning and getting a system of virtual documents, calendar, etc. Problem is my thumbs are killing me. I got a Targus stylus, which works ok, but it makes me nervous with the top being metal. Any try any other solutions? There are some on amazon, but poor reviews.
