Snippet: Love Notes to Newton ☇

Shared on September 1, 2018

I checked this documentary out a couple of weeks ago—for those who don’t know, the Newton was a very early personal digital assistant made by Apple in the 1990s. While it was gaining some traction, smaller and cheaper devices became popular, and it was killed upon the return of Steve Jobs to the company. To this day, there’s a small, but passionate group still using products in the Newton family and doing new things with them because it was a truly special platform, unlike anything else at that time or after. Even if you’ll never see one in real life, this documentary is a fascinating look at an important part of Apple’s history.
