Hi Bryan,

It's nice to read something from a former Apple employee. Despite I don't
know what the purpose of an "Autoserver" is I'm often questioning, what is
going on with the current PDA devices. I will doubtlessly not go back to
the Newton - simply because of its size - but it already had so may good
features which are missing today. I wonder why? Why does nobody program
Newton style notes with hierachic checklists and this excellent handwriting
capability? Where is cliphoard?? Where is MoreInfo with its cross-linking
features between the standard PDA apps? Are they gone, because the concept
of Soups to store data has been vanished?

In this context: The Newton and its ideas where ahead of time and therefore
it will never die.
best regards and have a nice weekend,

Marco Mailand
