Earlier this month we brought you news of this finger condom stylus thingie. Well, I got a sample a few days ago and must say that it s everything you could have imagined. While the perfect gag gift for any PDA owner, the Magic Finger has function to go with its condom-esque form.
Let s face it. Most styli are straight-laced and really not much fun. If you want to be the guy or gal in the office to set yourself apart, you need this stylus. I m actually laughing as I call it a stylus, but what else is it? You roll it on your finger, just as you roll on a condom (save your hate mail, we ll keep it PG-13 the rest of the way).
Out of the package, the Magic Finger looks like it just came out of a dispenser in the men s room. The foil wrapper is surrounded by a cardboard package with a cartoon of the stylus on the front. The foil has a small cut in it so you may tear it open. Inside is the little guy all rolled up.
Place it on the tip on your index finger and unroll to create a snug fit on your pointing finger. Stop laughing and use it just as any other stylus.
I ve got to say, I really love this creation. It s a great way to tap away at your PDA Screen in a safe manner. The main shortcoming is graffiti entry is difficult, as the rubber grips to the screen. However if you use an alternate data input method or are using applications that do not require text entry, then you re in great shape. I tested the unit while playing a few games and thought it worked great. The only other issue you may have is some tightness if you have large fingers. It fit me well, so I guess I m quite average. Ho hum
