    Would a stylus work with the iPad?
    I'm wondering because I'm tempted to get this instead of taking notes all the time in my classes on paper.

    Doubt it, it isn't pressure sensitive.

    No. why would you need one anyway?

    I think it uses electricity signals from your fingers or something?...

    You can use a stylus if it has a conductive tip, just like on the iPhone.

    No, the iPod (and I assume the iPpad) screen is capacitive, heat sensitive ones are generally used on larger surfaces, like the microsoft surface.

    You can just use one of the capacitive styli that are made for the small iPhone on the big iPhone.
