In case you've missed having him around, Newt wants you to know he's still alive and well and tackling the BIG QUESTIONS.
He's assembled a team of experts and they've "spent weeks" trying to figure something out and they're still stumped. (Kudos here, Newt, it takes a big man to admit when he and his team are still "really puzzled" after weeks of investigation.)
Newt is man enough to ask for your help and he's turned to the intertubes to get it. Don't let him down. Watch and submit your suggestions.
[Spoiler Alert: Newt, it's called a "smartphone" or "phone" for short.]
