Anyone have any knowledge on getting Newtons to sync with OSX? Is it even possible for iSync to work with Newtons?

I am in need of a very basic, simple PDA and I thought a Newton might be a fun alternative way to go Smile

A Newton would fun, but how about something like a Palm Z22? Very Happy

Here are some Newton-type sync programs--not sure if they would fit the bill or not:

I think the retro idea is cool--let us know if you get it going. Maybe you could get a brick-style cell phone to go with it Razz

I think Steve jobs said something about coming out with an 8 pound iPod. Big is the new small! Laughing

Here's another Newton link I fortuitously stumbled across:

Fond memories of the Newton I owned for a few months come flooding back ... bit heavy though!

It was probably the best *integrated* software I've used on a PDA though I loved my Psions more and I don't think I can improve on my present CliƩ TH55. Nothing has given me the urge to upgrade that even if I can't sync with any Mac....
