Newton mentioned:

The Newton
When Apple gets things right, it's spectacular (think iPod), but
when the company messes up, it's a hoot. The first popular
pen-based PDA, the Apple Newton, was big, expensive, and
too smart for its britches. Early models tried to interpret
handwriting with often amusing results, making words out of
users' scrawls that often combined into surreal "Newton
Poetry." We miss the Newton because what it thought we
meant was often far more interesting than what we were really
trying to say.
