    Well, neither N-Trig nor Microsoft are members, so I guess it should be called the Almost Universal Stylus Initiative.

    USI specification due out in the third quarter of this year, probably be at least 2nd Quarter of next year before we see anyone really change the pen. In my recent search for Active digitizer laptops and tablets it seems like most companies see the pen as a necessary evil for business and art clients but scares away the average consumer.

    Features I want:

    - reasonable hover distance
    - eraser
    - standardized nib sizes and lengths
    - nice carrying case / storage for spare nibs, nib removal tool and battery --- something like this: http://www.jetpens.com/Zebra-Sharbo-X-Multi-Pen-Refill-Organizer-Case/pd/5002
    - a variety of pen weights, diameters and materials --- make the electronics a package which would replace standard pen refills?
