Notes, Notes and again Notes. Any notes, sketches, hand-written or
keyboarded... And they are still there, even after a year or two. That
is Newton. Beside Newton I have Ericsson 990i. Nice piece of cake but
still for making calls and address-book. At this stage after I buy it 2
months ago, I cannot sync with either PC or Mac. Ha, Ha, Ha... 21
century!!! I just now update firmware!? Still I like it.
PS. Last time List was down a few days ago, I was first surprised than
sad. I looked at the "dead" list and the last e-mail witch reached me
was the e-mail called "Goodbye". I thought, really, the List is dead
because everyone is depressed. I decided to write an e-mail to the List:
"Subject was: WAKE UP"
"Since FRI 10PM I did not get any email from the list. Wake up. I need
more info from you. "Goodbye" or not, we are still alive."
