Newton Glossary

An almost definitive guide to Newton-related terms and trivia.


A condition affecting the display area of a Newton, where objects and text on the screen are excessively jaggy or irregular. This is related to the position of the pen being misinterpreted. One theory suggests that jaggies may be caused by either an electro-mechanical problem between the screen and the connector or dirt between the display surface and the surrounding bezel.
