The true techies on this list know more about, but my understanding is the software is somewhat sensitive to how one holds the stylus, plus maybe it couldn’t adjust itself when one changed screen orientation.
It’s very early HWR system; better than Model T, but not a Ferrari.
> can someone explain why pen alignments were necessary on the Newton?
via cable from low-power MacBook lacking wireless devices,
hence radiating no deadly EMR connectivity: see RadiateNot.Me;
plus powered by non-radiating coaxial DC cable from utility shed
where wall wart* EMR is indetectably far away
*standard Apple shielded power supply = less emissions
