When I suggested this I meant it to be an addition printed on the back of the
shirts. The front would still have the "Ink Different" or whichever design on
the front. With the chronology on the back we could also make people aware that
the Newton is still alive and kicking in spite of general belief that it failed
because handwriting recognition never worked and that it is dead since Apple
discontinued it. I think that is one of the main reasons for the shirt in
addition to our display of pride in the Newt.
