It's called the Apple Pencil, and it's $99. For basically, a stylus.

If there's an Apple pencil how about the apple pencil sharpener?

Well kids, I think this is proof that if you stamp a brand on something, someone somewhere's gonna buy it.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm on eBay searching for the most expensive pile of snow I can find from this past winter in Boston.
