I just got the Griffin stylus + laser+ pen for Christmas and I love it. I just hate fingerprints.

If you go to the Apps store on your Fire in Portrait / Vertical mode, you only see 2 columns of apps : Top Paid and Top Free
but if you rotate it to horizontal / landscape you get a 3rd column : Top Rated

I had found this on day one last month but some may not know about this simple/obvious trick if they are used to holding the Fire in portrait mode most of the time.

I got the Griffin Stylus at Target. About $20. Small and white color so it is easy to find among the other things. See: http://www.target.com/p/White-Stylus-Pen/-/A-13680076

Cheap and works really well as a stand for your Kindle Fire - Business card holder.

See one from Office Depot: http://www.officedepot.com/a/product...Mesh-Business/

It is a metal mesh type that will hold the Kindle either in landscape or portrait mode.

I have a griffin stylus too. It looks like the one Kate posted except it's black. I ordered it from Amazon for a little under $12.

Ok, now that is interesting. Thanks for the new tip.

What is the difference between the cheap (several for a few dollars) and expensive (1 for $15 or more) styli? Is the expensive one finer/more accurate? I got a pack of 3 cheap ones and they are rather thick but work well.

I would say the difference is about $14 each. HeeHee. :-)

Price doesn't seem to be a great indictor, but the rubber-dome (as opposed to foam) tips don't seem to be available on the cheap styli.
