    Java Psion Link:

    I have finally got my Psion netBook (really 7Book) connected to my Mac using Java Psion Link. I have included some screenshots of it connecting, backing up and browsing my netBook. It actually seems better backing up than PsiWin!

    I am writing a HOWTO on how to do it. The main problem I had was the serial-to-usb adaptor. I didn't buy the recommended £30 Keyspan adaptor but a £10 unbranded one which stated on the box, OS 9 and above supported which was not much help.

    Anyway, I found it was based upon the Prolific PL-2303 chip and there was a OS X driver which is under active development. It worked straight away with Java Link.

    So people are not confused, this is the device I believe he is talking about.

    Its like a little notebook for those who don't want to lug a laptop around.
