I’ll grant that this is somewhat out of left field, but someone wrote me a few weeks ago wondering if I could fix their Apple eMate. There are still Newton units out there and for those of you who still have one, Newton Research‘s Newton Connection 1.1 has just been updated to version 1.1.
The new version, a 6.6 megabyte download, still allows users to back up their Newton data onto their desktop, but without needing to enter the Classic environment. The software is still a work in progress with the authors stating the program can’t sync yet but asking for bugs and feature requests to be submitted.
Version 1.1 offers the following fixes and changes:
-This version of the application is self-contained and does not require an installer – simply move the NCX application wherever you like.
-The frameworks installed separately as part of version 1.0 (build 21) are no longer needed and can be removed by double-clicking the UnInstall21 script.
-The script runs in the Terminal application which you should close when it has completed. If the script fails, open UnInstalltext editor to view the files that should be deleted and do it manually in the Finder.
Newton Connection requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to run and is available for free.
If you’ve tried this or another Newton communication program and have either positive or negative feedback, let us know.


Newton Connection allows you to backup your Newton data to your Mac desktop, import and export Dates, Names, Notes and NewtonWorks, install packages and use your Mac desktop keyboard to enter text on your Newton device. In fact, most of the functions provided by the Newton Connection Utilities, but without the need for the Classic environment.
Newton Connection is work in progress, and the version available here is incomplete. In particular, it does not sync yet! Please report all bugs and feature requests using the Report Bugs application menu item within Newton Connection.
