Yeah, I would like to have Einstein on my iPod touch too. I just updated 
it to 4.0, and there are jailbreaks out there for 4.0 already, but I can 
not get the custom restore file I made with pwnage tool to work, 
probably because I tried to restore it using iTunes on windows. The iPod 
touch is a good evolution of the Newton platform, and I am absolutely in 
love with the notes app. It reminds me of the one on Newton. Plus it is 
way more portable than my NMP 2000. I would love one of the pocket-able 
ones they were working on before it was canceled, but I doubt I could 
ever afford a prototype if it came up for sale.
