    ipod touch/iphone is a heat sensitive touch screen.

    the stylus only work on devices with a pressure touch screen

    The ipod touch screen is heat activated. It will only work if something with heat is applied toit so if you put it in your pocket it will not move around and click stuff.

    if you wrap a pencil in aluminum foil it will work just press hard enough with the flat surface. wrap the aluminum around the eraser part

    It's possible. Only special stylus can do it.

    no it's not heat activated. Search "touchscreen" on wikipedia. The touch and iPhone are capacitive touch screens and the DS and most cheap ones are resistive (you have to press in the screen on then because there is two layers of screen)

    Stylus's do work on the iPod Touch but i think you need a specially made heat-sensitive one.
