So, why is it then that no one has developed an "app" for that?  Why is it we have no decent HWR app for the iPad/iPhone?  I don't understand the lack of a device that could be a Newton and more.  Are we expected to believe people would rather type on a touch screen than write and have their handwriting recognized and turned into text?  Oh, if I were only 40 years younger.
