Agreed...I really wish I had a better use for mine as well. When I was traveling I had appointments to make, phone numbers of hotels and those reservations to keep track of, mileage to record, and so on. Now I'm at a desk all day and have none of those things. *sigh*

HOWEVER...I must also agree with Christian. I believe that there will be Very Good Things coming soon from those Out There that are working on developing software for the Newton. If I had the time I'd learn how and try it.

I wouldn't give up just yet
