Made his own cable for the Newton keyboard

Made his own cable for the Newton keyboard

I saw the posting about the Newton keyboard on the SUPER page and gave it a try. Instead of splicing an 8-pin mini din on an HP serial cable, I made a 4-inch patch cable with an 8-pin mini din on one end and a 9-pin serial on the other.

Now I carry the HP in my coat pocket during the day, and when I get to my hotel room at night I connect the Newton keyboard and touch type lengthy documents to my heart's content.

I really find that it has made it completely unnecessary to carry a notebook computer any longer. The keyboard fits neatly in a pocket in the top of my briefcase. For those of you who travel a lot, this is a life-saver.
