Ditto that thanks, Miro. So, how long before "King Canute" Jobs notices
that his feet are wet, the tide is rushing in, and he needs to give us a
real "Newt-phone"? Standing for his principles is one thing; refusing to
fill a screaming need just because he doesn't like styli (or: holds a grudge
against the man who gave us the Newton?) is another.

And Glenn, it's good to know the handwriting conversion works. That bodes
well for when Apple finally realizes they need to bring back the Newton!
