death of Apple Newton 9 years ago

death of Apple Newton 9 years ago
On 2/27/98 Apple Computer announced, that they would discontinue the Newton. I remember, that I received a personal phone call from a very high level Apple executive a few hours before the official announcement telling me the bad news. Now it is exactly 9 years, that I am looking for a Newton replacement, but unfortunalety, I didn´t find one, yet. Maybe the upcoming iPhone from Apple can be a decent Newton successor, if it will be programmable by third parties, at least through widgets. More infos on Newton at NewtonTalk.net and UNNA. For running the NewtonOS on newer hardware, take a look at Einstein.
