Newton Connection Utilities 1.0 -- In TidBITS-379, David Gewirtz complained that a beta version of Newton Connection Utilities shipped with the MessagePad 2000 (and the eMate 300). Apple just released an updater to Newton Connection Utilities 1.0, which updates NCU 1.0b6 to version 1.0. If you've used the beta version to synchronize between your PDA and desktop machine, Apple recommends that you run another synchronization right before updating NCU. The download weights in at 4.8 MB. [ACE]
