    I saw that! From $400 to $100. Wow. Best Buy wants them to buy back all of them as they are not selling.

    I was playing with one yesterday at Best Buy. It was better than I thought.

    But ~

    iPad rules.:D Always did, always will.

    Yes - the Newton was an 'interesting' machine with handwriting recognition - of sorts. It was way ahead of its time in concept but the technology wasn't quite there. I have one at work that I get out occasionally to 'amaze' the students...
