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!). -- Ian Tindale
