As for the jaggies, there are several potential causes. It could be dirt
under the screen in which case you take a business card and run it around
under the screen and case edge to clean it out. It can also be hardware
related, including a manufacturing defect in some Newtons. This is
obviously more difficult to fix. There have been some threads of late on
trying to repair this, but it requires major surgery.
