I knew my comment would never be as funny as it was to me. Meanwhile, I am just as amused at their offering. It's hard to believe a BOD really thinks this device could compete (at that price) in this market.

The Newton. Time is not on it's side. Interest, admiration, and sheer appreciation for what it does and how it does it, will never disappear. However, Moore's Law tells us that the best is yet to come.

Handwriting Recognition. It's a magnitude more magical than a touch screen. I still see a future for this technology, especially in my computing paradigm. I like the brainflow it allows me.

I like my Newton. No need to replace it. I also like my ¡Phone. And, I can't wait to get a hold of the NeXT great iThing. But until it can transcribe and edit my thoughts like this 2100 I'm scratching on... I'll be holding on to this titanium stylus until... Well, someone already said that joke.

Best regards,
