I was staring at my Newton MP 2100 (originally a 2000, upgraded) and
decided to look and see if anybody still supported it. Turns out there
is still a thriving newton community out there, and lotsa cool stuff
For example, I was never aware that there is a version of macintalk that
ran on the newton. I need to download it and play - there are some
nifty text-to-speech apps as well...
The newton holds a special place in my heart - a good friend (who passed
on unexpectedly) was involved in the original development of the
newton. Every time I pick mine up, I think of Dave, and smile.
