    Better is sometimes "just better" then.

    Yup. And maybe I’m greedy, but I wish they had tested an S-Pen on glass, then the Pencil, and vowed to adjust the nib until it was at least as good. I know they can do it if they have the determination.

    Another way to look at it.....AES/NTrig/MPP was ultimately supposed to be a cheaper solution to EMR....like EMR would remain a premium option, and AES/NTrig was the budget/cheap option. Apple more or less took the budget option and made it into a premium one by going above and beyond what their competition was offering.

    Should have just bought Wacom and permanently kinked Microsoft's colon...Samsung so needs the Apple screen sales they would have cooperated I'm sure...

    Yeah like they did with the tech that was in Kinect. Which evolved to become face id on the iPhone.

    Supposedly MS at one point was working on putting it on Windows phone when Apple bought the company and pulled the rug from under them.

    PS: I still in some ways miss windows phone. I really liked the active tiles interface

    Fascinating! I never knew that about Kinect.

    I miss Windows Phone too. Loved my Nokia 920. :(

    Just stopping by to commiserate. Still use my 950XL as an e-reader / alarm clock. Love the live tiles, always on display, and the smoothly scrolling start screen. Anyway, carry on! :)

    This is why I feel MS' price hikes for the Surface Pen from included, to $50, to now $100 is particularly unjustified—it's like they're blindly keeping pace with Apple Pencil pricing, while ignoring the internal tech/reasons for the price.

    Apple Pencil 1 (for $100) had onboard stylus processing; Apple Pencil (for $130) has wireless charging...and meanwhile what did the Surface Pen get? :p

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but Apple actually offers far superior value.

    I want you guys as witnesses, but my ideal solution right now would be TWO iPM5's connected along the long edge - I'd have my Courier device...

    Maybe I should patent that one...

    BTW: I talked with our Apple rep yesterday and asked about the pencil a bit more specifically sleep and wake.

    Apparently it's more sensitive to vertical motion to turn itself on (like when you would pick it up) and less to horizontal.

    And he also had one of the new 8 core MacBook Pros with him (drool....)
