Good point. The iPhone, for example, doesn't have rubber feet on the back. I'm sure it would have been much easier to type on it (with two or more fingers, in landscape mode) if you could lay it on a table and not have it move. (Though my Newton's rubber feet keep falling off all the time. But I've glued them. However, after returning from the WWNC, I noticed that one of the feet from my Newton Keyboard is missing. Does anyone have a spare one?)
