Apple seeks engineer

Apple has posted the availability of a Handwriting Recognition Engineer position, citing the need for a dedicated employee for its Mac OS X handwriting recognition technology. According to MacRumors.com, the individual would be responsible for enhancing the existing product, as well as extending the technology's influence to "other Applications and the iPhone," suggesting Apple is trying to recapture the feel of its Newton handheld platform.

Originally called "Rosetta", the technology made its way into Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar under the guise of "Inkwell".

    Son of Newton?

    Interesting. Could this be the beginning of the Newton II?

    If Apple manages to get Inkwell to run on the iPhone/touch platform, that's it. All the parts are in place. It probably does already.

    One request: make it pressure sensitive!

    this is a no brainer!

    There are enough similarities for the Newton to be the predecessor of the iPhone_

    Just like the original all-in-one Macs were the predecessors to the iMacs - just like the G4 Cube was the predecessor to the Mac Mini_
