Despite this advantage I chose a passive digitizer tablet, Fujitsu T1010, because I like the Newton. It has lead me to grapple with how to emulate a three button mouse with no buttons :-) I love Squeak as much as I love the Newton, and smalltalk is designed for a three button mouse.

Hi Gary Using the Newton in portrait mode, I write most of the time in the bottom half of the screen with my hand resting on the bezel at the bottom of the screen. I very rarely rest my hand on the screen. But you're correct, active digitizers avoid this problem. I think this is why MS when this way with their Tablet PCs. The larger format meant that multiple pressure points would be applied on the screen at the same time.

Active digitizers are better at ignoring spurious input. -- [snip]_____________________________________________
