Magic Cap/DataRover Online

This is an archive section and "time capsule" dedicated to Magic Cap. Pen Computing Magazine covered the promising Magic Cap platform from its launch in March 1994 through its haydays in 95 and 96 with the Motorola Envoy and the Sony Magic Link and finally its slow, painful decline. This section will now serve as a memory and monument to Magic Cap.
