Worldwide Online Newton Conference

The second session of the »Worldwide Online Newton Conference« starts today at 16:00 UTC.
Exciting for everyone who thinks the Newton is the “failed” predecessor of the iPad or maybe doesn’t even know it. And in a sense, BeOS and Newton OS share a few things in common.

(Yesterday’s highlight was Steve Wozniak, who during the break exchanged ideas with a teenager about the advantages of different gameboy editions :slight_smile:

Steve Sakoman, the “father” of Newton, was also the co-founder of Be Inc, the developer of original Hobbit-based BeBox & served as CTO/COO. So indeed they share a lot :slight_smile:
