Todd Courtois, one of the creators of NetHopper (The first web browser for the newton). Has created Kablog, a system to publish WebLogs from J2ME enabled devices. Wouldn't a J2ME port to the newton be cool? There are already thousands of apps for that platform.
Wired has the story, but doesn't mention that the newton can also do it. Anybody cares to send them a message?,1382,57431,00.html

Ok, I need some way to keep the newton up while using the Keyboard. Let's see what i find around home. Hmm, those two holes in the back of my MP2100 must be for something... What about a long screw? Yeah!, I have this DB-25 connector case.

Let's try...

Looks like it fits! Great! It can hold the newt in three positions.

How does it look with the StowAway?

Talk about the poor man's stand. This idea is worth some development. Some kind of retractable, foldable pin that stays attached to the newt...

This is the wiring I'm succesfully using to connect the Newton to the StowAway keyboard.

If anybody wants to try an alfa driver, please email me.
