Ah, I'm going to interject here - could the 2010 Date Issue pertains *likely
* ONLY to a Newton with NOS 2.x

MP120 Upgrade or Stock NOS 2.0
MP130 NOS 2.0
MP2000/2000u/2100 NOS 2.1
eMate NOS 2.1 (or the ellusive NOS 2.2.00 if you were bad and forced your
eMate back to this)

NOS 1.x Units.
NotePad NOS 1.0b something or other..
MP100 NOS 1.3
MP110 NOS 1.3 (or 1.2 on my Clear 110)
MP120 NOS 1.3 (non upgraded)

Since Horvat refers to an MP110 and we compare how it was tested this could
be considered inconclusive that the MP110 is not affected by the 2010 Date

Does anyone else have experience in this matter?
