Newtons won't disappear. Worst Case make it a clock. (not destroying it!)
This product is history - at least for me, probably for all of us.
I was to young to get in touch with it being alive and new. But it fascinates me even now.
I don't really use it. But I play sometimes, or leaving it by the telephone - it's a good notepad.
Waiting for the day it gets real work.
But most of time when I'm seeing it - I'm some kind proud of it.
You said, you used it for a long time. Aren't there historic moments combined with Newton?
Isn't it just a hobby but perhaps a part of your life?
Even for me it mine is.
Last but not least - you are a part of a community that has spread all over the world!
All the best from Bavaria!

Now I have no office, do mostly physical labor, and deal with a single vendor at work. Not much need for an organizer these days and as for other software, my spreadsheets are too complex for Quickfigure, ebooks are easier on a Kindle, wifi is darn near impossible and wouldn't be much good given the screen limitations (too dark).
> My wife does make an interesting point. Unlike other hobbies, just about all monetary expenditures have already taken place. Other hobbies just keep on costing. But back to my original problem, why should I keep it if I can't find a need for it?
> PS. I've followed this list off and on for at least 10 years.
