I know I'm a bit late to this conversation, but if I remember correctly, the Newton was released before the first Palm Pilot. It isn't like Palm had a firm grasp on a market and Apple went after it. They were basically the first 2 entries into a nascent market.

Good catch. Guess making a PDA for 5 years wasn't 'competing with Palm' in his view. Though the Newton did die the same year he was rehired by Apple, so maybe killing a product is enough for him to mean what he says.

A nice bit of revisionism there by mr Jobs, along the lines of "We didn't go after Palm". What was the Newton then?
