There are some people on this list using the Macintosh version of the
free Palm Desktop software (or something like that). Palm Desktop is the
old Claris Organizer that was available some time ago. In NCU, they're
using the Claris Organizer type of synchronization file and they're able
to sync some information from their Newton to their desktop. I'm sure
that someone using that setup would be able to give far more detailed
information than me...
