Not any more. He has given away his stylus

After a long night out, I noticed the stylus was missing from my phone; "Oh no, where's it gone? Ah, that's right I gave it to Jonwil".
I have a couple spare in my desk at home.

long ago I've accidentally found a spare N900 stylus in some mobile accessory shop and bought it. it's not original since it's made of worse and more soft plastic but it fits perfectly, same as original. that was in fact the only time I ever seen a spare stylus for N900.

still haven't lost the original stylus yet already twice I though it's gone and twice I've managed to find it. I guess it's beacuse the Murphy rules - once u have spare all the time you'll never loose the original.

Some time ago someone on IRC freenode #maemo iirc sicelo, asked for homemade stylus for N900. So, I tried make one for fun.

First was piece of copper cable 1.5mm with isolation. It's quite instant to make but too much softness (easy bending).

Second was 2.5mm steel rod with piece of isolation on the tip. It's more stiff then previous one but ugly, can corrode and with hands contact smells (it's not stainless).

And third was 2.5mm copper wire with piece of isolation on the tip. It's quite stiff, looks better than previous and doesn't smeel with hands contact. It's best so far.

To make a tip I've ground one end to 1.2mm diameter and put on it a piece of isolation.

Diameter is not critical (max around 3 something mm) because wire ending shape (fot) does the lock into phone.

Cheers

Stylus number 1 might be the best out of them with 1.5mm steel rod instead of copper. I don't have any of that to test stiffness and other properties. Maybe someone else will test it.
