Peter et al.,
I haven't used any other than the newton rechargeable. I didn't start
getting the low battery warning until the last few weeks. I thought
maybe it's because I would come back to the office from a meeting and
plug the Newton into the AC, thus charging the battery. I started to
think that I may be screwing up the battery's memory. Does NiMh have
memory? Or is that NiCd?
I did get it off e-bay about a year ago. Have I ever done a hard reset?
I think so.
What are those preference add-ons that can set the warning level
differently? Does anyone know?
