Apple patent applications surface for stylus pens on iPad and iPhone

Apple patent applications surface for stylus pens on iPad and iPhone

It seems that Steve Jobs and his minions in Cupertino are reversing on the long held beliefs that a stylus isn’t required if you get a touchscreen device right. Jobs once quipped on stage during a presentation, "It’s like we said on the iPad, if you see a stylus, they blew it." If you go by that statement then Apple may have blown it since two more patent apps have surfaced that show Apple looking at stylus tech for potential use in its gear.

Apple Files Patent for iPad Stylus

Apple Files Patent for iPad Stylus

Apple filed a patent today for a Stylus specifically designed for touchscreen use. Does this mean that Steve Jobs is backing down on his position that "If you see a stylus, they blew it." ? Not necessarily. Jobs' point was that he didn't want users to need a stylus, as they did for PDAs. This stylus could have appeal for artists, gamers, and also those who are unable to hold a finger steady due to a medical condition. Obviously, this will not be your standard Palm Pilot stylus.

A Real Tablet has a Stylus

A Real Tablet has a Stylus

2011 may be the year of the tablet, but as a segment it's still painfully immature. Our hands-on with ASUS' Eee Slate EP121 last week triggered the usual arguments, dismissing the 12.1-inch tablet out of hand because of its perceived "old" technology. Admittedly, there are plenty of points where the EP121 could fall short: ASUS reckon users will see up to 8hrs runtime, which seems hopelessly ambitious for a relatively slimline slate with a Core i5 processor, and the display was frustratingly glossy. Still, the dual-mode hybrid touchscreen is its crowning glory for those who understand that there's more to a stylus than most - Steve Jobs included - would have you believe.

Gorilla Glass Demo [PLUS: How Gorilla Glass Works - Chemically!]

As you might already know, our man in the field Vincent was at PEPCOM last night checkin out all the fun electronics - but what was also there? Some sweet, undefeatable Gorilla Glass! This is the sort of glass the toughest devices with screens are apt to use - definitely not a low-grade situation. Gorilla Glass is made to last. Not to scratch, and definitely not to break. Over to the Gorilla Glass table last night and we were treated to a lovely demo by a nice man who let Vincent demo the glass by doing no less than attempting his hardest to break it. Fun!

oStylus For Those Who Enjoy Seeing What They’re Drawing Onscreen

oStylus For Those Who Enjoy Seeing What They’re Drawing Onscreen

One day, a jeweler decided they'd like to touch their iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and other touchscreen devices without the use of their finger. They tried the foam-tipped styluses, yes, and they did consider exercising their fingers to make them small enough for their needs, but it just wasn't good enough! That jeweler wanted something new. Thusly, they created the oStylus, a hinged "O" shape held at the end of a rod by hinges that allow it to stay flat to the screen, allowing you, the user, to be able to see everything you're drawing.
