Go to Simon Bell's site
select Newton Connection and download.  You might also be interested

Works fine with ethernet, once Newt is set up for ethernet.
Works and notes files are easy to import and export, don't think  
syncing is going to happen unless you write an automator script (if  
thats possible)
Names sync works possibly with some challenges re: fields best to  
check archives.
Search ICVC, I believe you can import calendars to newt but again I  
think syncing is weak

Backlights can be had from <http://www.backlight4you.com/index.php/cat/c47_Backlight-Kits.html/XTCsid/93fbc00d504797daf04c8eba99d7a5e0 
 > or
search "Newton Sales"
see <http://www.pda-soft.de/2x00backlightreplacement.html> Note that  
you have to fully disassemble the Messagepad to get here.  I'd set  
aside a couple hours and have a clean workspace where tiny screws  
cannot get lost.  I've done it several times and it isn't too bad but  
be aware that you may find surprises, many of the screws go into  
plastic and if they have been over-tightened or if it has been dropped  
you may find damage. (or cause it).  Areas of concern are screws at  
bottom of battery silo and on either side of port cover.
In fact the port cover is a good thing to remove since it can sever  
the digitizer ribbon if dropped or banged while open.

good luck
