...so that I could go back to... say, 1996, and tell people "Seriously, in fifteen years, people are going to get into hair-pulling fights on the internet over whose telephone is better," just to see the look on their faces.
Of course, then I'd have to explain "No, it's like a Newton, except you can actually do stuff with it. Like talk on the phone and surf the 'net."
PDA's were a pretty tough sell back then, kids: All you could really do on 'em was take notes and exchange electronic "business cards". A Palm III was $400 and a Newton was almost twice that; a little notebook, a pencil, and a faux leather business card holder was $1.95 plus tax at Walgreen's. It was a big revolution once you could carry email, games, and full-color porn around in your pocket.
