It is true: the day will come, when Newton is history. The synching and
communication abilities of the Palm family *are* impressive. Still I don't
use one. Gave one to a friend of mine, though. I use the Newton as a true
portable (more or less standalone) computer, and that has dramatically
turned me away from my desktop Mac/PC. The Psion that I use as my second
portable doesn't fit in my shirt-pocket either, but there is at least one
advantage to not being too small: I saw there's a new website devoted to
Palms which expired in the washing-machine or dryer, a sad fate which the
Newton's form-factor will hopefully prevent.
