Area 51

An easter egg found in the Newton OS related to selecting the infamous “Area 51” in the Time Zones application. When activated, icons in the Date Book application are changed to reflect an alien theme. For example, a meeting is represented by a person facing an alien, an event is changed to a flying saucer, and to do list tasks are represented by a robot.

On a MessagePad 130, the “Area 51” location is replaced by either Groom Lake or Dreamland.

Also referred to as the Aliens easter egg.
