    They should've kept that name for the cheaper iPhone they're supposedly developing...
    For my purposes as an engineering undergraduate; Windows is respectable (& generally necessary), Linux is admirable (& often useful), OS X is enjoyable (& requires no further justification, although plenty could be given)!

    In many way the early iPhones seem to me to be an extension of the Newton line. Hate to see that name go by the wayside. Maybe they will revive it for whatever wearable computing device eventually pops up.

    I may be wrong on this, as I was on the iPad Mini, but I just can't see Apple competing on the low end with a special cost-reduced iPhone. Their strategy of offering older models at deep discounts seems to work just fine for them.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I still have a Newton sitting on a shelf in my closet. No battery, but it worked last time it had a battery in it.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.
