“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants” – Isaac Newton

One thing I didn’t anticipate was how willing some of the original development
team of Newton and Newton OS would be to sit down and talk with me. As a result, half of the film is actually going to contain quite a lot of the history and philosophy of the Newt. I have uncovered a lot that was news to me (though not necessarily to anyone well-versed in Newton lore), for example, the Newton was originally meant to be a large slate-type device which would have a lot of advanced technology (and even a subwoofer) and cost $6000-8000 (in ’90s money!). That makes the iPhone X look like a steal. However, I don’t want to forget the original purpose of the film: to celebrate what came after the demise of the Newton team at Apple and the people involved today…
