This is such a trite thing to say. Yes, Microsoft does some wonky, geeky work. But to dismiss the writing implement of the past, oh, 8000 years because Steve Jobs says so?

Tried doing anything requiring precision on a tablet with your finger? It doesn’t work.
A stylus makes sense in some applications, not in others. I love simplicity too; doesn’t get much simpler than a pencil does it.
