Nope, didn't start with a "p". The company you are thinking of was
called Digital Ocean. They also had several other Newton wireless or
ruggedized products, all named after fish (Tarpon, Grouper, etc.) They
have been out of business for a couple of years.

Dave "Dr. Newton" Watson, who occasionally posts here, was an employee.
