Cade and I spoke for a couple of minutes yesterday. He asked what attracted me to the Newton, as a relative newcomer to the platform among us, in 2008, 10 year after production ceased. I mentioned the superior HWR, community support and the readability of the greyscale screen in direct sunlight. With more time, I could have easily mentioned more things - favorite programs, running on AA batteries for weeks at a time, etc., but we kept it short. He asked about where to find Newts and what they were going for, as well.
I closed by thanking him and Wired for keeping the Newt in the public eye after all these years. Thanks for passing this on, Grant; I 'll be interested to see the story when it comes out.
