Ikea pokes fun at Apple's $100 stylus

(via Adweek.com)


BTW: The two-year old Galaxy Note 4 came with a stylus that includes basic pressure sensitivity for drawing, handwriting recognition, and so on. It's not as slick as Apple's --- it's two-year-old tech, after all --- but Samsung included one stylus free with the phone, and if you need another, it costs you not $100, but all of eight bucks. Magical!
