My Newton Story:
I read about the Newton in the late 1990s as an underemployed and
therefore under equipped Apple fanatic. Wanted one desperately, but in
the same way I wanted a Porsche or a Rolex. Completely unrealistic.
Still - I knew that one day I would have one.

In late 2007, spurred by.... I don't remember(!)... I decided the time
had come and I bought my MP2100 online. I use it mainly for a
calendar, notebook, and portable e-mailer. Until about three weeks ago
I was living in Tokyo so e-mail in particular was a lot of fun for me
-- so much free wi-fi around.

I bought the eMate a couple of months ago and actually have yet to fire
it up because I had it sent to my father's address and I haven't yet
picked it up. Looking forward to it!
