<<I can see a potential problem in reading eBooks on the Newton without use
of the right hand, since the arrow buttons for turning pages are way down on
the lower right-hand side of the screen. I THINK there is an app somewhere
(somebody chime in here) that allows the Newton's on-off switch to activate
the page-turning function. There was also an app that supposedly could allow
sound to trigger the page-turning function. I never got that to work
properly... >>

I'd avoid using the power switch for page turns as it will wear out
eventually, and we all need to forestall that as long as possible. I am
left-handed and switched the page turn arrows to the right side of the Newt
screen. I think it's a simple setting in the preferences.
