Im a bit confused. Does anyone know how MagicCap and Newton are
related, or if they are at all?

according to wikipedia, the newton began development in 1989, and was
released in 1993

MagicCap began life at apple in 1990, but was spun off as GeneralMagic
in may of that year, got a bunch of corporate partners, and
eventually ended up being absorbed by windows CE.

I am just a bit confused, how a whole other platform was developed and
spun off while the newton was developed.

Anyone remember anything?
