> You can't connect directly to the internet because there's no TCP/IP stack for 1.x, but you can dial a computer that's connected to the internet if it's running a special program to send pages on to the Newton. I've made such a program for Windows, but it currently only works through a direct serial connection, so it's useless for practical purposes. Maybe I should finish and publish it some day?
