If you’re a geek and you haven’t yet scored a tablet, you might still need an implement for cursive writing (listen to GNC#603). If that’s the case, then check out the Circuit Board Pen available on Etsy.
The polished circuit board body will certainly mark you out as a geek even if you don’t have an iPad. Cost is $45 with $3.50 shipping – definitely cheaper than an iPad too.
According to the blurb, the underlying pen is a Wall Street II which takes Cross refills. I gather this is a popular pen for modding rather than Gordon Gecko’s favourite.
If you are not familiar with Etsy, it’s a great website for handicrafts and other personal items. Always worth checking if you are looking for a special present.
