It is frustrating that you can't fuse the two technologies. I have both an
MP 2000 and a Palm III, and in my mind the one thing that gives the Newton a
huge edge is the Rosetta handwriting recognition engine. Using Graffiti too
much hurts the hand. I miss the ability to write normally anywhere on the
screen, using whole words, and have it work.

It boggles the mind why Apple hasn't made Rosetta into a stand-alone program
for Palm and Windows CE. It's so much better than anything that either
platform has right now.
