> 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...

Well you can switch the arrows to the other side of the screen. You can
also use a package such as Dashboard or Gesture Launch to shrink the bar
to just the extras button and the arrows, which is placeable anywhere on
the screen. There is also a freeware app that does this, but the name
escapes me at the moment.
