    @W3bbo: The "fondling" comment is a little creepy. I know what you meant, but you could have chosen your words better Smiley.

    The "styluses just don't work" comment is flatly wrong. The stylus is precisely what you want for specific scenarios. I'll agree that simple touch interfaces cover much more territory and is preferred most of the time, but to ignore the stylus and handwriting recognition I think is just as short sighted. Personally, I'm hoping the new tablets are designed for touch, but continue to support the stylus and handwriting recognition.

    Whole-heartedly agree.

    The most annoying aspect of the iPad is the lack of stylus support for handwritten notes, drawings and annotations (I'd like to be able to hand-annotate web page snapshots with a Stylus and have these snapshots cloud replicated; IE?.)

    Added bonus if the stylus could be pressure-, tilt- and rotation-sensitive.
