    Sad Day for the Newton

    I guess the Newton isn't working out after all. It's been a great run. Poor Newton.

    Former Newton addict

    I joined Newton Anonymous a few years ago. Step 8 is selling all your newotns and related material on Ebay. I haven't reached step 9-buying a Palm- yet. I'm still in recovery. (yes i do keep stuff on my iPod but it doesn't tell me that i have no meetings today- I have to look it up myself) Newton was THE best thing to come out of Apple in the 90's-Years ahead of anything similar even now with all the STUPID convergence devices out there, let's hope Jobs will do a reversal (like he did on the Video ipod) and deliver a new device that utilizes such great concepts like "soups" and "no save buttons".
