Stylus Recommendation

    I don't think that a magnetic stylus would be such a good idea, 
because any movement of the pen would create a current into every 
conductor existing in its magnetic field (freerunner's circuits 
included). This current might damage or disturb the phone itself.
    Instead of attaching the stylus to the phone, I think it would be an 
extraordinary idea creating some kind of portable pouch/box with a 
special place for the stylus.
