Actually I've noticed a few bugs with einstein while I've been evaluating the half-baked version of Clarity (1.2.1b) on unna. Since claritys been
released as freeware now if anyone knows how to unlock the older versions I'd be interested (I only mention because it is released as freeware,
no flames please), I'm also trying to contact the dev about releasing the source code which was discussed on the list in early 2000's but nothing
seemed to happen. 

Anyway back to the einstein bugs, 

1) sound goes crazy every now and again, like when opening the extras drawer it starts repeating
like someone scratching a record. 

[temp fix] click on something else that makes a sound when it happens or shut sound off.

2) einstein starts running SLOOOOW after the newton auto sleeps OR after it's been open for 15-20 minutes even if it hasn't slept.

[temp fix] disable auto sleep to buy yourself 15-20 minutes, maybe a half hour, after that point it requires you to close einstein and reopen to reboot the newton.

3) einstein stops registering real keyboard input, as I was typing test data into clarity I had this happen a few times always before bug #2.

[temp fix] close einstein and reopen to reboot newton or use on screen keyboard/hwr until bug #2 shows up.

4) full screen doesn't seem to work at all.

[temp fix] unknown
