I have the hardware you are looking for:
1. The Interconnect adapter - $ 25.00
2. Either a bright orange plastic stylus - free (and it fits in the
hidey hole on the MP) - or a genuine OEM stylus for $ 12.00
"Shipping" any or all would be $ 2.00 to buy a drink after dealing with USPS.
Let me know, please.
