No More Newton, Inc.? The fledgling Newton, Inc. may not flutter away from the Apple nest. As we reported last Friday in TidBITS Updates, Apple now plans to retain its PDA unit, primarily because of the eMate 300. Different reports have Apple using the eMate 300 design at the core of a new series of computers for the education market or as the base for an inexpensive network computer (a system that uses the network for storage, both for applications and files). Steve Jobs has made comments about wanting to move the company in that direction, and now that Oracle CEO and network computer proponent Larry Ellison is on Apple's board of directors, an eMate-based network computer running Java isn't any stranger than the rest of the news coming out of Cupertino these days.
