It’s that immutable green brick factor.
You have to admire Leander Kahney. He has a nose for news, especially when it relates to anything ‘of the cult’, as it were. Case in point, who would be the first group you’d survey for a reaction to the iPhone announcement? Why a bunch of Newton users, of course. What demographic would embody the emotional clamoring for a modern, multi-function, touch-screen handheld device? Why, the vociferous, jilted community of Newton users of course. Last week, Mr Kahney queried several Newton fanfolk (including yours truly) on the following topic … “Who’d want to lug the old green brick about when they can have a shiny new iPhone?” You can probably guess the outcome. See who comes out on top in Apple Newton Versus iPhone.
