Newton Spirits

May 3rd, 2009


Splorp (Grant Hutchinson) shares his copy of Newton Spirits on Flickr:

According to mujitra, this is “the bible for Japanese newton owner.” Flipping through the book, you can understand why. Published by NTT in 1997, Newton Spirits is an illustrated how to guide, product history, technology platform reference, and overview of all things Newton — including software, hardware, screenshots, prototypes, and specifically the use of the Newton in Japan.

Japan’s has it available, though you have to wade through the Japenese to order your own.

Morgan at Makkintosshu grabbed his own copy recently. So jealous.

Butterfly haiku

April 18th, 2008

by Moritake

The falling flower
I saw drift back to the branch
Was a bultafly.

[Just when I thought the Newton would complete it’s first perfectly-translated poem, the last – and most important – word gets fouled up. It should say “butterfly,” of course. Hurray for spring!]
