    In Defense Of The Stylus

    A little while back, I got an email from Atmel, one of the leading touchscreen makers, asking if I wanted to check out their latest creation: a new active stylus that works with an improved touchscreen, for stylus actions alongside normal finger-touches and technologies like palm rejection. I passed, because to be honest, it didn't sound very exciting. It has shown up at a few other websites, though, and I thought (slightly apologetically) that I should at least watch the video. I did. And — it's not very exciting. Yet despite being a third-class citizen in our world of capacitive touchscreens, being publicly ridiculed by Steve Jobs, and generally being considered a nuisance, the stylus isn't something we should relegate to the company of floppy disks and CRT monitors just yet. Here's why we can't write it off.
