Re: Quote from Saint Jobs himself

Neither did you need a stylus to operate the XP tablet edition rig from HP (work machine) that was on the table beside me when I first read that Steve and jony had invented something completely new called an,"iPad." We used the stylus for signature capture, nobody used it for anything else. I used the keyboard because I'm the kind of person that still has a blackberry, but most people in my firm used it like a thick iPad with Windows on.

Jobs' anti-stylus stance was his usual facile reality-denial."it's new and innovative! Doesn't even have a stylus, *completely* different from anything that's gone before. If you have a stylus you're braindead. You wanna be braindead? No you need iPad. Innovative."
