The Stylus Sucks

What’s the stylus good for? According to Microsoft’s TV ads, it’s good for circling things. I know because I made the positive life decision of watching every advertisement Microsoft’s made for the Surface, from the ones that aired on TV, to the multi-minute-long ones the company uses to pitch businesses.

Styluses are bullshit.

I’ve never seen a compelling use for a stylus, save for actually drawing and making art with it. If I had to get a stylus, I’d get the Pencil from FiftyThree.
