But I got the impression that you can paint on the thing. Some PR
images I saw of a painting done on the iPad (?) were strongly suggestive
of actual brushwork, so I guessed that the fancy capacitive touch
technology would be responsive to an actual brush of some sort. If so,
why not a stylus? In any event, would Apple boycott a handwriting
recognition app just because the boss is averse? ;-)
