OK, so all this talk about checklists and stuff is converging with an
intention I've had for a long time to get more organized. I tried a
day-timer a couple years ago, but the limitations of paper just got me
frustrated. So I'm looking for an electronic organizer, one that I
can write into, and that will sync with my PowerMac at home and my NT
PC at work.

It looks like the two choices are the Newton (a friend loves his 130,
and the upcoming 2000 (?) will kick it's ass), and the Pilot. These
two are very different creatures. The Newton is big and heavy and can
do everything (e.g., the new one will come with mail reader/web
browser, and can use the Ricochet wireless Net modem). Since I'm soon
to be spending lots of time driving around the Bay Area, having the
GPS card option with navigation software would be a big win. The
Pilot is tiny and limited but I could put it in my pocket and forget
about it.

The question is: if I buy the Newton, will I haul it around, and if I
buy the Pilot, will it do everything I want?

Anyone here have experiences with these two boxes?

Maybe I need both. . .
