PCPro UK Real World Computing: Notes just keeps going and going

This fits somewhat with my comments theother day about how Notes has a halo effect but is sometimes perceivedas outdated simply for being old.The fact that the Notesdemo concluded without interruption while the UMTS one fell over at thecrucial moment didn't seem to matter - there's marketing power in acronyms(and a lack of it in any 'old' product).
