I suspect part of the reason the iPhone might not get to be Newton
3.0, with stylus and all, is (apart from PDAs not being nearly as
sexy) what the stylus eventually does to the screen. I love my 2x00u,
but it has enough marks on it that I can't see using it for video and
really enjoying it, if it had the capability.

At least, that's my guess. Plus, even regular pdas seem to be moving
away from stylus alot in favor of a dinky little keyboard.
