I would assume that a stylus made from conductive plastic might solve
this very easily.

Anyway, I just read this on Ars Technica:
"That said, I can't help but worry that, come October with the
release of Mac OS X Leopard, Apple will finally endow developers with
"true" iPhone development tools. Hackers have been digging up strong
evidence in both the iPhone's system files and the latest builds of
Xcode, Apple's development app, that bolsters this assessment. If
true, we would definitely see a significant boom in powerful, well-
designed apps for both the iPhone and iPod touch (after all, that new
iPod has even more open slots for new apps than the iPhone does).
Folks will eventually spend far less time digging around in file
systems and more time bringing the much-needed third-party game to
Apple's mobile device platform."

So let's hope for the best and port Einstein soon.
