Very impressed by your WiModem for C64/128, so a version for the Amiga with a few more bells & whistles as suggested by others already would go down well IMHO!

Dead wrong on all counts. There are many cheap options to add ethernet and/or wifi across the whole Amiga range. Even on big box Amiga's all you need is a cheap USB card (e.g. Rapid Road ~$90) + wireless ethernet adapter (~$10). You might want to have a read of this nice summary of options:

Indeed! The C64 has had the Contiki net suite since the early 2000's Unsurprisingly, web browsing is quite limited.....but everything you mentioned is available on C64/128 (and without necessarily needing to buy expensive hardware add-ons either!). Geez, there's even a Twitter client!
