It:s possible Apple may use the Newton OS for a super-iPod marketed to
the music club DJ crowd. I read somewhere they were working on this. A
standard iPod may be too small for a DJ, who like to run 2 turntables --
or harddrives-- simultaneously. A larger iPod may very well have
multi-persona logins, one for each club venue or music style night to
play from prepared play lists. Plus throw in WiFi, etc, and the current
iPod becomes too small. Its easy to see why the Newton OS would be
ideal, then-- it already allows multiple memory cards -- then
harddrives-- and a little DJ software added with virtual spinning disks
on the screen complete with track labeling etc. And voila, the Super
orig message--
