They didn't do either one (especially the latter). They bought the
rights to the ORIGINAL Newton CURSIVE recognizer, that Apple licensed
from Paragraph, now owned by Vadem.. You know, the one everyone
lampooned. (Somebody tell Gary Trudeau!) It was called Calligrapher. The
PocketPC's hwr is a variant of Calligrapher. It's been available for
PocketPC for years, as I recall.

Rosetta is still solely Apple's. And still much better.
