As you learn how the Newt works with the new implant,
can you keep a log of minor annoyances? I mean
anything that kinda works funky and not like it used
to. things like network card interoperability, battery
life, quickness of handwriting conversion...things
like that...It would be helpful in that I am also
planning the implant route...(Haven't yet figured out
how to get the money to Germany though) With your
information (your's is more important than some one
who's had their implanr for a while because the
original Newt is still fresh in your mind)
