I have just lost my sixth Palm stylus, which means yet another three-pack. It’s annoying, because they’re always black. So are my desk at work, my chair at home, and the various badly lit pits into which small stylus-type things invariably fall.
Has anyone ever seen them in non-black? And I mean a stylus that will fit in the little slot on the side, not a combination pen-stylus. (I’m hopeless at keeping pens.)
I found a five-pack of styluses (styli?) for my Handspring Visor that had colored tips (blue, white, green, black, and yellow). They were on a clearance rack, and I don’t know that they would even fit your Palm. Just thought I’d mention this.
My Palm sylus locks in fine. Note the original doesn’t say they slipped out (which has never happened to me or anyone I know of), but that they were lost (which has happened to me and many palm owners I know of).
Indeed, I’ve never had one fall out - what happens is that I use my palm at my desk (a/k/a The Black Pit of Calcutta, or the Compost Heap for Dead Articles), and then I -
<pause> put the stylus down.
Which of course means it’s Gone, for the reasons I mentioned in my OP.
Translucent might be a bit of a help, so I’ll try Office Max. What I really want is one in Neon! Green! Or with a built in microchip that would announce “Help me, I’m over here!” when separated from the palm by more than six inches.
