Apple's Newton vs. Apple's iPad

Apple Newton Vs Apple iPadIn 1993/4 or so, my dad had a MessagePad using the Apple Newton mobile platform. The Newton was well beyond its time and it was the iPad of the 90s - well, kind of. In any event, in high-school my dad got bored with it and I was the only one in my high-school with an Apple Newton. Yea, I was a really cool kid!

I actually remember using it to take notes in some classes, but mostly playing the snake game on it often.

Ronnie recently dug it out of his old room at our parent's home and brought it to the office. Today, I had some time to create a bad video (sorry, my normal camera is not here) and take pictures comparing the Apple Newton to the Apple iPad. Yes, we have an iPad here.

Barry, it's contrast control. That is what you were trying to say. Interesting notes: 1) When I popped in the fresh batteries, it told me I need to swap out the clock battery in plain English. 2) The on screen keyboard shares a lot of the iPad's characteristics. For example, if you click on a number entry field, you get a customized numeric keyboard. If you start typing, the Shift key automatically gets hit for the first letter of each word. Amazing Apple had this tech 15 years ago!

Great possibilities for a PDAI've had my Visor for 2 months now and it has been a great purchase. Compared to the Palm IIIe and Palm M100, I believe it is superior in almost every facet. My girlfriend has a Palm IIIe and the only drawbacks I can think of for the visor are: the cover, the stylus, and lack of ROM.
