[NTLK] Regarding the internet navigation thing

Hellow fellow newtontalkers!

I know the idea of browsing websites with the newton is not very appealing
but I kept thinking about it and finally got my first prototype working.

Because I don't think I can attach images to the mail, follow the link to
see the newton companion, prototype 1, in all its "glory" (or it was gory?)

So far the thing can bridge a PPP conection through the modem and a modern
Wify at flazing 36k (i think it can go up to 250k but I would need to fix
the impedance problem with the max3232). The modem so far has been tested
only on my emate and newton 2k, but should work with any serial equipped
macintosh that supports PPP.

Next thing should be implementing some kind of internet "translator" to
adapt the pages to sizes the newton will understand, and I also want it to
be able to syncronize packages and do backups, but, hey, it's a start.

The definitive version will be battery powered and will fit on a case no
bigger than the old newton modem.

Cheers and happy Newton year ;)

PD: Also may poutine be with you
