Newton still good for posting blog entries.

Turns out you can do some blogging with your Newton and a keyboard, even these days.

Writing articles… well, this is a joy to do. With the Newton keyboard, it is easy to write in Newton Works’ word processor. I simply import to my computer and copy and paste the text into WordPress. It even has a spell checker. In fact, I almost prefer working in Newton Word over Apple Pages.

Holden filed that post with his Newton 2000 and keyboard. I can imagine doing the same thing with an eMate or any other MessagePad with a good keyboard. Scribbling a blog entry with a stylus? That’s a little trickier…


  1. And don’t forget about microblogging. The Newton is a swell platform for posting your daily tidbits via your Twitter account as well.

  2. This is just sad!
