You know, now that you mention it (and since this is NewtonTalk), it might be nice to see an SE/30 and a MessagePad paired up together:

Of course, he's "cheating" a little bit, because he does have a IIsi ROM installed in the SE/30, but you can't have everything. ;)  Seriously, though, it looks like he put a lot of work into that setup (and it must be nice to run NCU on a machine with a built-in serial port and System 7).

Also, he's one of the few people I have heard of who have ever played around with Newton Keyboard Enabler:



...which is something I keep meaning to try out myself.....RSN. :)

Anyway, great stuff.
