Long time technology writer Frank McPherson reminisces about how the Newton launched him on his career:
Wired reminds us
that twenty years ago this week in August 1993 Apple began selling the
Newton Messagepad. The milestone is significant for me as it actually
lead to some life changing events. I didn’t know it then, but my
fascination with portable computing and willingness to spend nearly
$ 1,000 on the new device would eventually lead me to realizing a dream
of being a published author.
Frank works as a Technology Consultant for the HP Enterprise Centrer. He lives in West Bloomfield, MI with his wife Ruth.
