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.
