Re: stylus

I would strongly suggest getting an Adonit Jot stylus. It's different than the fat nub style ones. It has a plastic see through disc that enables VERY accurate interaction and pen like line thickness. Watch the videos on their site. It will become obvious very quickly that a regular nib stylus is old school technology.

You can get them through Staples.ca, theSource.ca, their website and elsewhere. The only thing to keep in mind is that the pressure sensitive capabilities of two of their models don't work on the PlayBook or their phones. Adonit caters to Apple and soon to Android. It needs software support and PlayBook currently doesn't have that kind of SDK. However, if pressure sensitivity is not a need for you, then their regular Jot stylus will work just fine.
