I have to agree with Doug. I spend so much tine staring into my Newton that sometimes I'm tempted to remove the NuShield. But the fear of scratching the precious screen kept me from it. I went with a naked Newton screen for 1 month and love the clarity. I use the Cross tip so it is very gentle on the screen.

I'd be more than willing to give a clear sample a test run and report to the list my findings and experience. As for size, I'd appreciate an increase of about 1 mm top to bottom.
