I'm curious - what has changed to make your Newton(s) ineffective?   
I'm assuming that, at one time, they -were- effective for you?  BTW, I  
feel the same way but, other than the 2010 glitch, I can't put my  
finger on -why- I feel that way...

Very nice!  I'm also a collector - my collection is somewhere upwards  
of 100 models, including Lisas & Apple ]['s (but no NeXT).  I think I  
have at least one of every pre-Intel Mac except for the TAM & Mac  
Portable.  I like your idea of collecting 1.0 models!

Same here - I've never had nor wanted an iPhone.  The screen is too  
small to be useful, and I prefer a phone to be just a phone.  The iPad  
-may- someday replace my Sony Reader and, in certain situations, my  
Macbook Pro - but I have no immediate plans to get one.
