Monkey See, Monkey Do

Monkey See, Monkey Do

I feel like such an idiot. Today on MacBreak Weekly I tried to illustrate a problem with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 discovered by Phil Nickinson at Android Central. I inserted the stylus wrong end up for what I thought was a safe distance. It wasn't.

Phil says

DO NOT PUT IT IN BUTT-FIRST. IT WILL GET STUCK.

I should have listened. It's well and truly stuck. Next stop: The ATT store. 

UPDATE: ATT says they won't replace it because it's accidental damage. However, they did say I could send it back to Samsung. Or that if I restored it to original condition I could return it (I've only had it a week). I pulled a tiny bit on the pen and was able to ease it out, but the sensor no longer works. Not the end of the world - I can launch the S-Note app by hand - but somewhat annoying.
