Serious Bandwidth

A legendary anecdote where a Newton user named Robert McNally entered Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky into an original Newton device and had the handwriting recognition generate what was basically a new lyric poem — known variously as Tablespoons or Newtonwocky. The phrase “Serious Bandwidth” was the translation of “Frumious Bandersnatch” from the original poem.
