Better than the iPad? The Blackwing

Is there anything better than this analog input device? The feel of it in your hand, the way it glides smoothly across the papery screen with its proprietary blend of wax into the graphite shaft. The way it captures every thought in buttery smooth fashion. Only one other thing can rival it.

The USB Typewriter
Thomas Edison, please save some incandescent bulbs for me.  I can't see a damn thing in this faint light.

    I love writing w/ pencils. My current favorite is a mechanical Logo II 0.5 with 2B leads.
