Nostalgia Hits

Went through a drawer to organize some stuff and found my Apple Newton MessagePad 2000 (upgraded). Turns out it works if I let it sit plugged in enough. Awesome, I went through the whole thing exploring that fantastic integrated user experience it provided, the software I had bought for it and installed, the 5 year old address list that made me all nostalgic for everything. Man, did you know you can shove a specific wireless networking card in it and get it on a WiFi network? There might even be a browser for it.

This morning I am like, what, so I am going to spend hours updating this thing? It still has a strange monochrome screen and no processing power. My laptop already has a touch-screen fro me tp draw with. My phone carries all my data. So what am I supposed to do with it?

I'll probably stuff it into another drawer tonigt.
