...probably nosediving off topic now, but how many people here used to have an 
Apple Newton? I did - one of the original ones (OMP). It was total rubbish at 
recognising my handwriting. Almost never managed anything vaguely like that 
which I wrote.

More recently, a couple of years ago I got a Pocket PC - (Casio EM500). It 
uses handwriting recognition that seems to resemble the Newton in almost 
every way other than name. Equally rubbish, unbelievably so.

Managed to come across other handwriting recognition software though, called 
'Calligrapher'. This seems to work in exactly the same way, but differs 
markedly in that it actually does seem to work. Not every time, of course - 
in fact, not usefully enough to make text entry a fluid process, but I've 
never wanted to throw the PPC through the window since Calligrapher (unlike 
the Newton, which has been thrown against many a wall in sheer anger (top 
marks for the strength of the display though!).
