OK. We admit it, the Pogo Stylus looks and sounds like snake oil and is about as exhilarating as calling in a pencil to review. But it’s starting to get a bit nippy here in New York City at night, and that means one thing is running through every iPhone owner’s mind: How am I going to type on my phone with gloves, again, this year? Fret not. We called in the $19.99 Pogo Stylus for iPhone to see if the stylus, that’s supposed to work for both iPhones and the iPod Touch, actually let us type with gloves on. Read on to see our results. The metal Pogo is slightly longer than a cigarette, about just as fat, and has a small rubbery tip at the end of it. We didn’t have any gloves around the office, so we found the next best thing: a fat stack of napkins. We wrapped the pogo stylus in 15 napkins to simulate the thickness of a glove, and then tried writing an SMS. We found that touch typing using the stylus was actually really easy, and we liked the small bounce that each poke gave. Even better, if you get a smudge on your screen you can wipe it off with the tip of the Pogo. This winter when we’re standing out in the cold, we wouldn’t be ashamed to use the Pogo instead of taking off our gloves while waiting for the train.
