Pencil by FiftyThree is a revolutionary stylus for touch-screen devices. Use Pencil with Paper for iPad to express your ideas beautifully and easily.
OK, I assume that a stylus like Pencil works by telling the app when something is touching *it*. So if only the app says it’s being touched at any moment the stylus is on and paired, then it must be a finger/something else manipulating the app. When both Pencil and app report being touched, they can synchronize and boom, special stylus features.
What’s not immediately obvious is how the palm rejection/wrist protection stuff works. I would have to believe that much of it involves motion — extended stylus input would be extremely predictable, since it’s a single point that gets dragged or re-placed. If your wrist is on a screen, it’s a) a huge area much larger than a stylus point and b) generally not moving at all. Add to this that you typically place your wrist down on paper to write before and after the pen/pencil tip gets put on the paper, and you’ve got a lot of data to use… ON HAND.

After a fifteen-year hiatus, legendary indie comics creator Bob Fingerman resurrects his classic “Minimum Wage” series with Image Comics.
I’m not going wild for this idea of bringing *Minimum Wage* back. Years ago, I might have, but now I have reservations.
One of the things that made it so authentic was that Fingerman used it as a lens to understand his own life at that age. But the reboot will keep the characters only 3 or so years older than the end of the original story line, which happened 15 years ago.
To write about a life 15 years in the past is to write with a huge dollop of hindsight and lots of woulda-coulda, and I feel the authenticity that made the original series such an amazing piece of work will get lost in the thinking and planning when there is no reacting to emotion and the moment in time.
But hopefully I am wrong about this.

How could a movie that both Mœbius and Gaultier worked on not be visually awesome at all levels?
11 Reasons Why Showering Is The Best Part Of The Day (Minus the GIFs)
It’s a great excuse to play with bubbles. It can invigorate you. It’s the perfect opportunity to sing your heart out. Or unwind with the warm, steamy water. You can wear a mask. Crank the water up and grab some body wash to combat a hot, muggy day. You can reflect on your deepest thoughts. The feeling of a warm bathrobe is absolutely glorious. And a blast of cold water at the end can be totally refreshing.
I have never seen a blog encapsulate everything we don’t like about Buzzfeed so well.
I’ve always joked that New York should just create a city-wide tram system, so this is a wonderful surprise for me: Jared Ficklin at TEDxKC with a whole presentation of how a “flying car” tram system would benefit mass transit and the public itself.
If young, emerging talent of all types can’t find a foothold in this city, then it will be a city closer to Hong Kong or Abu Dhabi than to the rich fertile place it has historically been. Those places might have museums, but they don’t have culture.
That’s what it’s been feeling like to me lately as well.
Oh, you Californians, you.
