        Working in the midst of the Windows world, what most folks are
impressed by is: the handwriting recognition; the ability to plug in a
modem or ethernet card and get right on the Internet; the Assistant
(write out "remind me to Go to the dentist" or "schedule Dentist
appointment March 17 at 1:00" and hit "Assist"); and the level of
integration between the various soups (write out "schedule lunch with
<some friend> at <some place> tomorrow" and hit assist, then look at the
location and invitees part of the meeting. This works if your friend and
the place are in your names soup). While WinCE devices are flashy, they
just don't provide this level of functionality.
