As I mentioned before, writing experiences on a capacitive screen still has a long ways to go, no thanks to the fact that you can't have a fine pointed stylus to write with.

Anyway as I was browsing the Gadget Crack Dealer DealExtreme, I stumbled on this little stylus.

Basically it's a 2 in 1 Capacitive + Resistive Stylus. The sharp pointy part is for resistive screens, and the stubby slanted rubber part on the other end is for capacitive screens.

The resistive end works as expected, though I'm always a bit wary of carrying styluses with exposed nibs since they might get damaged during transportation and scratch up the screen.

The capacitive stylus on this one.. SUCKS ASS. It's feels like rubber instead of the foam like material for the last capacitive stylus I used in the video above. Therefore it doesn't want to glide on the screen. Not good at all.

The search continues for a usable capacitive stylus. Hmmm... I need to try out that steel wool thing my friend suggested.

I'm really curious about the Dagi capacitive stylus. It has an angled clear plastic disc on the tip with a red dot in the middle so you know where you're clicking. I would try it out but I don't have a capacitive screen. I went for the Asus T91mt instead of the Lenovo S10-3t (probably should have gone with the Lenovo).

I also saw a video showing that the anti-static film computer components come wrapped in registers touches on capacitive screens. I wonder how something like that would work rolled up like a tortillon?

Antistatic film eh? Well I gave it a try, while it causes the screen to detect the touch, it seems... errr.. OFF.
