NewTen is now providing Newton connectivity for Mac OS X with a product that lets you install packages on a Newton MessagePad from OS X over a serial connection, without having to use any Classic applications, reports Cult of Mac. At this time, NewTen supports package installation only, not backup/restore, etc. NewTen does not currently support Ethernet or infrared connections. The NewTen utility works with Mac OS X 10.1 or higher and supports any USB serial adapter that installs a driver into Mac OS X’s “/dev” directory, such as the KeySpan TwinSerial USA-28X. The built-in serial port on some Macs is also supported.
