Completely agree. Nickel and diming customers for things like fast(er) chargers (to charge faster than a pathetic 5w) and keyboards/pens (that are literally 50% of the reason the device exist) is disgusting.Some other companies that come to mind are apple, apple, and apple.
Correct. The EMR detection system adds thickness and weight to the device, so companies have switched over to using the capacitive touch grid instead -- it already has to be there to support touch operations. I used to think that the battery-powered, capacitive pens were garbage. HOWEVER, they do not feature the distortions and edge inaccuracy that EMR pens had. Drawing on a Yoga 720 (Wacom AES) beats drawing on a Motion LE1700 (Wacom EMR) by miles. So much more accurate!Stylus that requires batteries or charging? Why? The only thing I can think of is that to get the thing super thin and light they had to go with this style of tech and make the stylus inconvenient instead?
