Klingons and Khan couldn't kill off Captain James T. Kirk, but big money can bring anyone down. William Shatner, who played Kirk in the original Star Trek, said Saturday that the character's death was all about the Benjamins, according to CNET sister site comicbook.com.Spoilers for a 1994 movie ahead: Kirk, played by Shatner, dies in the feature film Star Trek Generations while working with Star Trek: The Next Generation captain Jean-Luc Picard to stop a deadly missile. Shatner said he was told the character would die whether or not he appeared in the movie. And if he didn't come back, Kirk would die offscreen. He agreed, but not until pressing the point of why this had to happen. "So the producer said, 'We're going to kill Kirk because we think that The Next Generation will make more money at the box office,'" Shatner explained.

The Galaxy Note isn't the first time we've seen how useful a stylus can be. There was a time when the best mobile devices all had a stylus. Whether you're talking Palm's Grafitti handwriting recognition software or the absolute marvel that was WinPad on early Windows mobile devices (seriously, it was awesome and ahead of its time) the stylus made an impact in how you used your mobile and what it could do. The stylus faded from memory as other features like scroll wheels and trackballs came along, until someone figured out that you could do "everything" you needed to do with just a good touch display.
