    Dunno. I couldn't figure it out in the few minutes I spent with it (with a sick infant on my arm). Initial impression? It's horrible trying to read teensy tiny blurry fonts and impractical to use the Wii for Internet access as pointing to the onscreen keyboard to enter URLS blows. Unless I had no other Internet option, I guess I'd be somewhat happy. Maybe the final version will be better?

    Also, does this trial or even the final version of Opera on the Wii support Windows Media Player or Quicktime? I assume so, but otherwise, forget about downloading movie trailers.

    Isn't it supposed to be flash-enabled already? My brother tried to watch a video on Youtube, and it was no dice.

    FYI guys. Youtube is not working anymore. Not sure if Nintendo or YouTube is to blame here. :/ Anyway, Google Video is our new WiiTVii. So there, play a video and mess with some settings and it will look great.

    probably thanks to it being a yahoo exclusive *L* anyway, I'm sure someone (probably the guys who make the action replays) will make a keyboard that you can hook up to the Wii. Not to mention, this is only a Beta, not a final release. the Final is due out in March 07.

    Sounds like a Nintendo problem there. They are probably saving the media features for the full product, and not the beta.

    This is my first post from my Wii. The text is way too small on my TV. It also sucks about the lack of video support. I don't see our avitars either. Still it is kind of cool and the typing is not so bad, just a little slow. I hope the final version is a lot better and they find a better way to adjust text for those of us still using a standard TV.

    Edit: I can now see the avitars. Strange that I couldn't before. I guess the page was not fully loaded.
