Ah, the bliss of my ignorance! Somehow I've assumed the Newton is a
"handheld computer with HWR". Unwieldy, I know, but once I saw the Newt in
action, I couldn't think of it as just a PDA. I'm just sorry Apple didn't
see the potential 10 years ago for the Newton to become at least the major
part of the future of portable computing.
