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".
