  1. Hi Adam

    New site design looks good.

    Nice to see this page of software back up and running again. It’d be sad to ever see it go forever.

    Stop on by if you ever feel nostalgic. BTW, how would you like to be interviewed for my blog?

    Cheers

    Genghis

  2. OH my gosh wow! modern software developed just for the Newton! you guys are great! I’ve just rediscovered the newton after becoming very disillusioned with the iPhone and android devices. I’m trying to get my hands on a unopened Messagepad 2100.
    Anyone though of writing an epub reader so we could look at some books that aren’t classic, or converted by hand?

  3. It was so hard to find this page, could you possibly add newton software as a tab?
