Rare is that an iPhone or iPad user has ever looked back at the stylus and thought that it could be of beneficial use to supplement the multi-touch interface of gestures and swipes. Perhaps that may ring true, although that does not mean that a stylus cannot add to the experience. Well, for the right user that is. BoxWave makes its own stride with a new stylus that has the claim to fame of a unique mesh tip, but is it enough to compel you to pick up the EverTouch stylus? Read on for our very complete thoughts on what a stylus can and cannot add in the touchscreen era.
No one can argue that Google hasn't done an amazing job of catching up to the iPhone. A year after the release of the iPhone, Apple looked unstoppable. Then T-Mobile launches the G1 — which was a horrible device — and it didn't look like Google could come up with anything any better than Blackberry or Palm. Despite a rough start, Google has done a lot of things right. But for everything Android has done right, they've managed to do as many things wrong.
Apple has gotten a lot of guff (including from us) for giving developers headaches and laying down the law on certain things that don't always make sense or make us happy iPhone users, but this can be a good thing if the developer happens to be a bad guy trying to steal information or rip you off. Google opted for the polar opposite approval policy, leaving their Android Market wide open for all developers. The danger there is that you run the risk of allowing downright nasty malicious apps in and let people download them, which is exactly what has happened.
