Thanks for that quote lol.

I know I am late to the party on this but the isolated aspect of
Einstein is why I haven't really tried it much.  If I can't get data out
of it, then it is not worth it.  With the original hardware I can still
export and import data.

If we had some sort of implementation that allowed Einstein to
export/import data then I would jump on it. :)  Don't get me wrong I
think Einstein is a wonderful achievement but if you can't get your data
out, well what is the point?  It is why I didn't really use any sort of
PDA's before the Newton.  They were all data vaults.  You put in your
data but unless you wanted to type it in all over again, it was locked in.
