    Didn’t see a thread that holds a topic like that together, instead they go of on a tangent for each separate product. Here is one that might interest this looking for a durable alternative. I give you the iReader X-pen.

    Despite this guy running a site completely dedicated to Wacom EMR e-readers, this seems like a clueless review. Is there a single digital pen that uses a CERAMIC nib? I can't imagine a corporation that went "hmm, this nib is going to be constantly dragged against a plastic or glass surface, let's make it from a ceramic material so it scratches the hell out of everything."

    I think he is referring to the Apple Pencil. Almost everybody compares tablets to iPads these days.

    I honestly don't consider any review on their site as a review. More like a commercial for the products they sell. Still, they usually are the first ones showcasing a new product before anyone else.
    That iReader X-pen is interesting. I'm tempted to try it out.

    Noris jumbo digital pencil is now available but for some reason in Canada amazon, the only options for it are $154. lol Importing to Canada from Amazon.com however would be $50USD, more reasonable, but still a little ridiculous. Will wait for it to become easier to obtain from Amazon.ca I think.
    Amazon.ca : https://www.amazon.ca/LAPICES-ESPEC...eywords=Staedtler&qid=1604436891&sr=8-15&th=1

    Noris purchase page (scroll to bottom) : https://www.staedtler.com/intl/en/discover/noris-digital/#section-26100

    Wow That is crazy. Probably since its being sold by 3rd party and not directly from Amazon. But is that $50 on top of the current $38.37 USD price on Amazon dot com? if So, wow.

    no, thankfully $50 USD total after shipping and import fees. That's roughly $65 in CAD, but certainly more reasonable than the current hiked 3rd part prices yea. Still, these days trusting packages to make it across the border easily is a crapshoot.
