Once upon a time, before there were ball point pens, kids used to get a new pencil box every year when school started (and a new lunch pail too). The pencil box contained a minimum of some wooden, yellow No. 2 lead pencils, a big eraser, and a pencil sharpener. Griffin Technology brings back this nostalgic time with its retro-looking stylus ($19.99) in the form of a No. 2 yellow pencil for capacitive screen devices.
Around the turn of the century, early PDAs or personal digital assistants like Palm Pilot and Microsoft Pocket PCs had styli and a silo to stow them in, but you couldn’t use your finger on those screens. Then came the iPhone with its finger touch screen. Let it be known as the dirty screen era.
