Four questions about the DS...

1. Does it have wireless internet abilities?
2. Does it plug into your computer? If so, what does it do?
3. Does it need a Memory Card to play?
4. What is the cheapest combination of DS games I could buy for it?
5. What is the most... whoops, that's five questions. Sorry

1. Depends on what you mean by internet capabilities.  It can play games over the internet if the game supports it.  If you mean browsing, e-mail, etc., you'll have to wait for a third party solution, but it is possible.
2. It does not plug into your computer, but in the future you'll likely be able to connect to it wirelessly.
3. No.
4. All of the first-party games should be the same price at $29.99.
5. GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND.

Bluetooth technology is really cool, people!

That technology made Nintendo DS wireless from regular multiplayer mode to online gaming!!

They're using 802.11b for internet and a proprietary protocol for local use.  I don't even understand what Hope was trying to say.

Yeah, I know, but I'm way too lazy to look it up... :)
