Rules for this homebrew item

This datapad from the 2010s is a discontinued gadget from WorldSat which used to be able to receive news stories via satellite. That protocol was deprecated by WorldSat, making the gadget useless without modification.

It used to be able to audit news stories and content instantly with a thumbprint and save preferences.

The Newsviewer can be jailbroken to become useable. Using a popular jailbreak software (available for free), the WorldSat can take advantage of legacy code in current communication protocols to browse the NET. The black and white display does not have the capability to display graphics: the content displayed kind of looks like the raw HTML/CSS of a webpage. This jailbreak allows the user to access the NET and screamsheets anonymously and without paying a subscription.

Delivering happiness... for the right price!
