*raises hand and waves it wildly*
"Ooh! Ooh! Pick me!"

It's like being in school again: if I answer first I get to say the easiest

One word. Connectivity. How do I get my Newton and my computer to talk to
each other, and how do I configure for diallup and/or ethernet and/or wifi
and/or Bluetooth-plus-mobile phone, so I can get online?

And then, for extra credit please, questions arising from connectivity,
like: what software is best so I can download the packages I want on my
Newton, how do I get my Newton to synch certain data, what are the best
modem cards, ethernet cards, wifi cards, Bluetooth cards and mobile phones
to use with a Newton and how do we go about finding them and setting them up

And for more extra credit, questions related to battery packs, batteries,
charging and battery life.

Seriously (for a moment) Thomas, this sounds like a cool thing you're trying
to do.
