I've heard, for example, that the demo for Newton Connection Tools is crippled beyond reasonable usage...most references to it that I have read have ranged from politely asking to almost downright demanding that the author a) reduce its price, and b) release a more usable demo version so it could be better evaluated. Also, the author didn't accept PayPal but instead wanted a UNNA donation...click on that UNNA donation link (from the link you've provided in your email) and you get an Error 504--Server Not Found screen. (This would still have been a better setup then his initial requirement of a Western Union money order.)
The fact that it's been years since it was announced (2007) and that no one has come out and recommended it...or that the method of payment is a dead link makes me very leery of the entire process.
All of which is really too bad.

But using Google Calendar and a plugin called 'gSync', it's possible to use Google Calendar as your main PIM and subscribe to it from Apple iCal on the Mac and Outlook on the PC - and from Outlook maybe sync the info to a Newton with Newton Connection Tools (hence the above question).
