Fellow Newtoneers,

Be that as it may ... I was just told, that this Apple guy, Shiller,
or what his name is, publicly declared that there are NO, I repeat
"NO!" plans for any Apple PDA in the future. There will be no
successor to the Newton and there will be no Palm OS (with Apple
extensions) like device from Apple. He also said, that he wishes that
people would stop spreading rumors that there is something in the
pipeline, as there isn't anything.

What does that tell me? That my Newton is worth more than it's weight
in gold (or diamonds or whatever else there is).

Best regards,
