The stylus is cold to the touch but warms up rapidly, which is typical
for metals. That's not what you would expect from a mere coating. I can
confirm that it isn't conductive for electricity, but what's really
strange is this: the part of the eMate's stylus near the tip that looks
and feels just like the material most of the MP2k's stylus is made of,
_is_ conductive!
