I just can't say it any better than this. Would you mind if I quote this
e-mail in a discussion I've been having with a friend who doesn't get why I
wear my holstered Newton everywhere when I could have "a proper smartphone"
with "cool features" that just slips into a pocket? I've shown him how it
works and what it does, and he still insists that things have "moved on".
