I'm sure MACup magazine is a very nice magazine, but they are not authorized
to speak on Apple's behalf about Newton plans. For that matter, I'm not authorized

Alan Kay is an Apple Fellow, and aside from having an active lecture
schedule, oversees advanced research projects within Apple. Most notable is
his Vivarium project, which concerns learning environments for young children.
