that the new language would let them build compact applications on many
platforms, including the Macintosh, Unix workstations and the company's

"Newton, by contrast, is implemented in C and C++ and runs on the ARM 610 RISC
chip (for now).  It will eventually offer its own development tools and 
scripting language, but Apple is vague on that right now.  One candidate is
Dylan, a so-far-experimental LISP-like language user development at Apple's
Advanced Technology Group.  Its main advantage over LISP is that it is a
language, not an environment, and can work easily in standard operating
environments (or in Newton's)."

"Earlier in the week, Apple revealed that its Advanced Technology Group had
developed Dylan, a programming language for developing PDA applications."
