Below, some examples.

To the left: A Handspring Visor running a commercial application I wrote called nCite, one of the first bibliographic programs created for that platform. It was occasionally handy to be able to carry a dissertation’s-worth of up-to-date citations in my pocket. For the most part, though, nCite was a solution in search of a problem.
