No, not literally. This has been going on for months, where my stylus kept disintegrating itself. Now, same thing happen @ uni, but this time, one of the zinc/ whatever piece got lost somewhere in my laptop. So, I tried to retrieve it with a pair of paper clips (And got embarrassed in the process.). Just wondering, do shops back home (like Low Yat.) sell replacement styluses for a Mio A700? It's this one (Just that my parents don't like the idea of shopping on eBay.).-> Mitac Mio A700 Replacement Stylus Brand New - eBay, Other PDA Accessories, PDA Accessories, Computers. (end time 16-Aug-08 19:33:57 AEST) Will post a picture of my broken one when I get back home.
