Integrated Pen and Microphone

      The concept of an integrated pen pointing device and removable
microphone is disclosed.

      A removable microphone can be integrated with a pen pointing
device to make each easier to use together in a pen based
environment.

      As the Figure shows, a small microphone can be attached to the
top of a pen pointing device.  The microphone is removable so the pen
can be used by itself.  Also, the pen serves as the base of the
microphone that can be held by the user.
