Newton Never Dies. It only gets new Hardware? Now there's a serious technology flashback! May I just give you a peek view into one of my drawers?

Usually I am not prone to technostalgia, quite on the contrary, as the numerous generations of outdated hardware (starting with C-64, then Atari STs, finally Macs of all descriptions) may bear witness which have found their way into my friends & family circle (at a considerable discount). Not so with the Newton: I am still a proud owner of two MessagePads! (Well, maybe it's got to do with that nobody wanted them at any discount, but anyway.) And reading about Einstein to revive Newton (wouldn't that make a nice image?), I think I might just go and buy a Linux PDA ...
