Re: [NTLK] [OT] Guess what I found (hint: Magic Cap)

At one time, I had the Sony PIC1000 and the Motorola
Envoy 100. I traded in the Envoy 100 for the 110. This
one had the reflective LCD which made it much easier
to see.
I liquidated my magic cap stuff years ago accidently
when a errant box of "junk" somehow made it's way to
the curb early one trash day morning. My wife says it
was an accident, and oh well, not as if I was actually
using the stuff, and I don't miss it!
I agree with you, the Magic Cap really needs to be on
a handheld to be appreciated...but that's kinda the
way it is with all the good handheld GUIs! One of my
favorites is the IBM Simon. Now that's a device I wish
I had kept!
