Brand new bag

Got a new tool to help my writing on the road.

It’s an old Apple eMate 300, based on the Newton. It’s got all the functionality of a PDA with a built-in keyboard. The keyboard sealed the deal — that and the 24-hour battery life.

So if you don’t see me posting on this blog very much lately, it’s probably because I’m down at the waterfront writing under the shadow of the bridge.

Before anyone asks, I purchased this at a price significantly less than the original $800 retail price. And I also completed the purchased before July 14.
