Speaker Series Friday Nights @CHM

Love Notes to Newton Screening

The Newton, created by Apple, arrived on the scene in 1993 and was an early pen-based mobile computer. It spent six years in production, was elegantly designed, and highly anticipated. But the dream didn’t last long and in 1998 Apple stopped selling the product. Despite its short time on the market, the device resonated with its disciples and a community of Newton lovers emerged.

Join us for a screening of Love Notes to Newton, a film about a little green computer and the people who love it. The film features over 40 interviews including Steve Capps (responsible for much of the software design of the Apple Lisa, Macintosh, and Newton), John Sculley (former CEO of Apple Computer), as well as the quirky and unique fans of the platform.

Filmmaker Noah Leon, early Apple Newton team members Steve Capps and Walter Smith sit with CHM's Marc Weber prior to the screening to discuss the beloved (but short-lived) Personal Digital Assistant and the community that celebrates it. 

Friday Nights @CHM is offering you a whole new way to experience the Computer History Museum. Beginning at 5 p.m., enjoy food and drinks in our front patio. CHM exhibits are open from 5 to 9 p.m. and are free to event guests.
