The Apple Newton

The Apple Newton is truly a revolutionary device. Just look at what you can do with it!

This very post was written and posted entirely using a newton. Not bad for ten year old hardware. People have even written software to deal with the Newton’s 2010 problem, while other software lets you edit the time zones to compensate for this years DST change. I don’t see the Newton dying until it can no longer understand the current year. This happens somewhere around 2037, so that gives a few years to write a patch.

The Newton never dies, it just gets new batteries.
