I tought of this several times but finally found it more useful to have a
Mini-8 connector mounted into the little plastic cover. Unfortunately the
Mini-8 is to big. What about this: Using a serial to USB adapter inside the
Newton and having thus the Newton talking to USB? Probably is then a special
USB driver needed and NCU will not talk to USB at all :-( But the USB could
carry audio in/out too.
