“Our task is to read things that are not yet on the page.” -- Steve Jobs

I find this interesting as an owner to a (now broken unfortunately) MP 130. I always preferred the cursive recognition as it was more accurate with me personally, but I was cleaning out a bin and I chanced upon something funny I scribbled on paper regarding my Newt. Most of the time, after owning it a while, it was for most part balls-on-exact with recognizing my writing (which is a huge feat considering that I'm dysgraphic). But every so often she'd go all "egg freckles" on me and spur a really funny interpretation (probably when memory or battery was low and things were lagging out it seemed). That was the scribbled contents of this paper that I found today. According to this paper, I wrote: "Sync Newton with computer. Don't let Newton overwrite Mac entry" Resulting translation: "Spur Weirton melt pollen don't let hurling over crumbs Mars entry." Pretty epic, huh?

I find it interesting that the Newton dictionary had the word Putz in it...
