I don't know about you, but my green friend's battery life beats the
iPhone by a couple weeks. Granted, most people don't carry their
Newton everywhere and I'm not sure if Chris does.

Unfortunately, I don't have a good suggestion for reminders that
wouldn't clutter up your calendar, not to mention the fact that I find
Date's reminders to be abysmal. I use Adam Tow's AlarmClock
<http://www.tow.com/software/newton/> for my morning wakeup, but it'd
be too easy to forget to reset it.
