    The lack of an eraser is particularly ironic considering they decided to call it a pencil instead of a pen.

    That will be another accessory sold separately. For just 99$.
    Revolutionary! Best eraser ever.

    According to TIME's list of 25 Best Inventions of 2015, no ones done this before.....o_O

    In the 450 years or so since its invention, the pencil has become so ubiquitous, it's easy to forget how remarkable a technology it is. It can write at any angle. Shades get darker depending on how hard you press. Marks can be erased. Reproducing this functionality digitally has vexed computer engineers for years, which is what makes Apple's latest effort so impressive. The Pencil allows users to draw, paint or write on a screen, just as they would a sheet of paper. And it works in tandem with the iPad Pro, a tablet faster than roughly 80% of laptops sold in the past year, so there's no perceptible delay. That combination has already sparked chatter about new ways to create art, animations, blueprints and more. "You can rest your hand anywhere and [the iPad Pro screen] totally ignores it and it just reads the Pencil" wrote Don Shank, an art director at Pixar, after testing the products in September. "It's pretty amazing"

    How does this compare to an actual drawing tablet?

    Jeezuz.

    But then.., TIME stopped mattering years ago, if it ever really did. The Empire's mouthpiece, distributing "official reality" to the denizens of the Matrix.

    I wonder if Apple pays for spin or if the editors are just drones who really believe their own crap.
