As a GM I highly recommend this for new players, especially NON-hackers.  This is info that every shadowrunner needs to know about how daily interaction with tech is like, tech they likely OWN.

It's a bit long for a print-out for Demos, but it does nicely set up what CommLinks are and how they're arranged.

This is a perfect ressource for newcomers. I'm going to run my first game as GM in shadowrun (played thrice in SR3) and all my players are gonna be newcomers, so this is an excellent ressource to introduce them to a quintessential item of SR4. Thanks for this good work.
