Re: [NTLK] How do you use your Newton?

Essentially, I am using it as a personal office assistant/tablet.  It sits next to my MacBook Pro on my desk, and you won't find any paper around here.  I take notes on it, use it for To Do's and reminders, write articles on it for my blog, and am starting to use it more like a tablet PC.  That is, reading eBooks and using it for analyzing spreadsheets.  I also play a few games on it, and have surfed the web from time-to-time.  With that said, it makes a great RSS Reader.

Additionally, I also pull it out when I get lonely: there is something so surreal and charming about it.  With all that said, it syncs with OS X Leopard no problem, and all of my contacts are on it.  I may also be putting MP3s on it via the iTunes Classic plugin to use it as a home music player.  Since I have a 1 GB flash card in it, storage is not really a problem...  Ok, off to the cafe for some late night article writing... with the Newton of course!
