They do have similar software for the other, or "differently-abled" PDA's out there, right? Hmm, I might be interested; sounds like useful software for some of the things I'm doing, but maybe the office could spring for the iPaq software version. It's difficult for me to commit to a purchase for the Newton right now, financially speaking. But, a Newton release could very likely influence potential future sales for other platforms!

Thanks for looking into this Brian. It would be cool if you were successful in getting the software publicly released. Good luck!
