Apple Patents Stylus for the iPad?

I don’t think I would have believed this one if I had not seen it for myself. Apple, particularly Steve Jobs, has disliked stylus pens on tablet devices in the past. In his own words, Jobs has said the finger is better than the pen. Well, Apple just patented designs for a stylus of sorts for the iPad. I think this is a great idea. Why not? If it works well, it would make the iPad that much more irresistible for many people that are hesitant to make the switch to tablet devices. Read about it here.
