Einstein is a great project, but i also love the MessagePad as is.

I can't imagine why after nearly 10 years it has been killed by Apple,
people wouldn't love to continue developing on it as is.

Apart from that, would you gently spend some minutes of your time
to explain a bit more in deep what could be done to upgrade NIE?

After the efforts spent on the WWNC which have taken place in 2004
and 2006
i think that you could have had a successful meeting on almost any
part of the world.

The links below points to the pages i've found googling about the
Einstein night.
