To summarize, based on skimming this article for 30 seconds:

1. Use a USB -> Serial adapter or Bluetooth to connect the Newton
2. Make the Newton appear to be a mobile phone by replying to some AT commands 
in certain ways
3. At the right time, stop talking like a modem and start talking OBEX
4. There is no step 4.

[ANN] Einstein Platform 2006.6

Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce the release of Einstein Platform 2006.6 for  
MacOS X (PowerPC and Intel) and for arm-linux.

What is Einstein Platform?
--------------------------

Einstein Platform is a way to transform a computer in a Newton  
device. It's NewtonOS taking over existing architectures.

Einstein Platform 2006.6 was revealed yesterday night at the Einstein  
Night at AppleStore Ginza. It features full screen support (with  
rotation) as well as Relativity.

What is Relativity?
-------------------

Relativity is Einstein Platform latest technology. It allows the  
merge of host and newton technologies inside Einstein Packages. It is  
easy to use and developers can take advantage of anything on the  
host, from OpenGL on the Mac to Japanese Handwriting Recognition on  
the Zaurus.

Einstein Platform, with the documentation and two relativity sample  
codes, can be downloaded from my website:

Re: [ANN] Einstein Platform 2006.6

Nice work - I'm anxiously waiting for the 770 build! I hope its fantastic!

Thanks for taking the time to continue on with this project. I tried
carrying around my 2100 for a week, and it just so big compared to my
770.

[REPORT] Einstein Night

Hi all,

I should say I have been impressed by the Einstein Night at  
AppleStore Ginza yesterday night.
This event was organized by Newton Users living in Tokyo, around  
Makoto Nukui (aka GNUE) and the Newton Gravity Group.

Not only did they managed to get a slot at the AppleStore theater to  
talk about the Newton (I was somewhat scared when Sai talked about  
Steve Jobs in his presentation of the Newton history), but there were  
around 60 persons attending the event. Check the group picture there:

http://newton.so-kukan.com/gravity/wp-content/uploads/2006/06/ 
P1010313.jpg

It's the largest Newton user audience I've ever seen. Apparently, it  
was the resurrection of Newton Japan. They didn't meet for eight  
years and they were all there, most of them brought their Newton.

I should say the organization was really great. The Newton Gravity  
group even found a Newton user who did the simultaneous translation.  
Everything worked smoothly, surprisingly my demos worked as  
expected :). The AppleStore provided a lot of facilities. The  
AppleStore staff said it was one of the largest user event there.

People were apparently very happy of the event. Everything was filmed  
and pictures were taken. I'll let you know when more material will be  
posted online.

I'm really thankful for all the organization staff for this wonderful

Help with Installing Files to 2100

Good evening!

I recently got a pristine 2100 and I am trying to get
the internet connection items on there plus several
other packages, and I have it connected to my G3
iBook, but when I use the NCU, it doesn't recognize
half of the packages that I have sitting on the
desktop.  I am pulling them directly off of the UNNA
CD.

Further, I'm trying to use my Lucent WAVELAN Gold card
with the Newt, but the Newt doesn't recognize the
card.  I'm sure there is something I'm doing wrong,
but I would like to get my Newt WiFi capable, and I'm
having a devil of a time.  Help Please!

Thanks.

Karl.

You are indeed correct. I should have said 9W, not 9V. Carelessness
costs Newtons....

Feeler WTT notephone for 2100

Was thinking about trading my Siemens Notephone for a mint MP2100  
with accessories.  My Notephone has been converted to an english  
rom.  If I decide to do a trade the tradeee will have a complete  
background check to make sure my beloved notephone goes to a good  
home. I just figured since I never use it i might as well set it  
free, unfortunately the only thing i'll trade it for is a MINT MP2100  
with accessories, your asking too much you say? no problem i'll hang  
on to my Notephone.

Interested parties contact me offlist

Congratulations!

While waiting for ROM Dumper to transfer the data (I use a Lucent WLAN
card - it already goes for almost an hour now), I wondered I shared
this little information:

Did you know that Einstein's name, who was, after all, German,
literally means "one stone"? So, if you're ever looking for an
alternative program icon, consider a nice picture of a stone,
preferrably a green one :)

Re: [ANN] Einstein Platform 2006.6

Paul,

maybe this has already been answered - I am not scanning this list all the time:

Do you think it could be doable to run Einstein on an iPod under
iPodLinux? I am currently quite involved in that project and have some
insight into its hardware and software. I wonder how Einstein works on
Zaurus - I suspect it's running as a kind of virtual machine, i.e. let
the Newton ROM run on the native CPU, instead of emulating it? The
iPods have ARM7 CPUs.

Curious,
  Thomas

Re: Help with Installing Files to 2100

Hi Karl
The wikiwikinewt connection at the bottom of this and all emails from  
this list is very useful.

for OS X you can correct the file type with
  "Packager"
<http://metastasis.net/mici/dl_e.html>
for OS 9 use Pack Type
<http://www.unna.org/view.php?/macos>

Looks like both can be downloaded from the second site

The WaveLAN gold should work fine once drivers are  
installed.........again look at wikiwikinewt.
