Apple's Newton: An Artful Reminder of Nostalgia, Epic Failure

Apple's Newton: An Artful Reminder of Nostalgia, Epic Failure

Artist Cynthia Malaran has a thing for vintage geek; she painted this tribute to Apple's failed tablet, the Newton.

This Painted Newton Plaque, just $60, would be an original work of art for your wall (it's part of a limited edition and each piece has a haiku on the back).

It shouldn't really be just a reminder of a failed product, but ultimately tenaciousness; after all, without the Newton (just check out this interface!), would we have the iPhone?

You can buy them for like $20 on eBay now. My ex had one and I LOVED it. It's way way ahead of it's time but I'm thankful for this because YEY iPhone! :)

The Newton was just too ahead of itself. I don't think people really got that technology back then or saw the need for it. When I first saw a Newton in the early 2000's I was shocked at what it could do. I had a Handspring Prism at the time and it was very comparable with some of the things it could do. I was floored.
