If it helps matters any, there seem to be quite a few list members who make use of newer hardware and software because, amazing though it is, the Newton dates from the late 20th century. As such, it's unrealistic to expect a device whose last model turns 15 years old this month to be all things to all people in the second decade of the 21st.
If you'll pardon my mentioning it, I recognize your name from the list archives. I understand your visit back might be a short one*, but it's still nice to hear back from someone who was on NTLK way-back-when.
Welcome back. :)
*Fair Warning: lots of people have shown up on NTLK in the past with the intent of doing a "dine and dash" for technical information, but then find they can't bear to leave the list because all the bad jokes are so awful that they're actually quite compelling. ;)
