iPhone Cheese Stylus: When Cool Doesn’t Count



Tech writer Leo Laporte didn’t quite buy the story that South Korean iPhone owners adopt snack-sausage stylus sticks to use their devices with gloves on in winter.

In the time-honored tradition of investigative journalism, he decided to check it out for himself. He didn’t happen to have a meat stick handy, so he tried an appropriately stylus-shaped cheese stick instead. (For the record, it was “chilly” and string cheese).


Check it out for yourself: it works. (From about 3 min. into the video).

His experiment also answers another important question about using stylus (styli?):  they’re always pretty cheezy.
