    The web browser is okay, but kind of cumbersome. I use it in the mornings before work to look up the weather and news right quick. It is quite useful for that, but sometimes it takes awhile for a connection to be established. I like general web browsing, as it is quick, but text entry needs to be tweaked a bit.

    I'd like to see more channels come out besides what we currently have. I'd like to see a Videos channel, where you can view game trailers and video demos online (as well as movie trailers). I'd also like to eventually see a Game Boy Channel (seperate from the Wii Store) where you can play Game Boy games from the original system all the way up to the Game Boy Advance.

    I downloaded this earlier, it is quite interesting. It works similarly to the forcast channel. What I find fascinating is you can find out what is news all around the planet. A fun little channel. I do look forward to them making some more as well. Maybe have a Nintendo Show channel where they show old episodes of mario bros. super show, and zelda and all those other shows, and maybe even make new ones!

    The Wii News Channel is awesome. But when it starts up it should totally play the theme from the Situation Room. That would kick ass.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that. I managed to finally get a wireless router that works with my Wii. It works with my DS too, when I'm foolish enough to use WEP...

    I'd like to see a Nintendo Power channel where you can view streaming video game reviews, and other features such as Retro Game of the Day where you can download a demo of one of NP's favorite older games and then buy the full version from the Virtual Console.

    Hopefully my Nintendo Wi-Fi dongle will work just fine with my Wii when it gets here. It works just fine with my 2 DS's.

    Hopefully this supposed more Euro centric edition later on in the year will allow some picking of different RSS feeds. The AP ones are all well and good, but use of terms like 'soccer' is pretty grating, and I'd much prefer to be able to pull the BBC feed for example.
