If you haven't guessed where I'm posting from look at the title. Pretty cool huh.

Umm... To add a little more substance to this topic...

Who here has downloaded it?

I wasn't expecting it (or other channels for that matter) to take up memory blocks. I may put all of my channels on an SD card if I run out of room.

The browser is a lot faster than I thought it would be. I was little upset at first when I realized that it wouldn't fill up the entire screen, but it's still readable and I don't mind zooming in. But still, this is a BETA, maybe it'll me full screen for the final version.

Playing flash games is pretty fun. I've been playing Duck Hunt a lot. Lol

I recommend Wii Tabs (http://team-dsx.net/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=73&MMN_position=45:45). If you miss tabbed browsing then this is for you.

It's definitely an interesting idea, especially with the remote, but how do you type? Is there a keyboard you have to point the remote at or something?

(Yes, as you can tell I don't have it...YET.)

Yeah, that's how it works. The keyboard pops up whenever you click in a text area or what not.

I was surprised at how fast it was too, and considering it is still a work-in-progress, I'm impressed with it. I mean, it's not gonna make me stop using my comp for internet access, but it's nice to have the option of going online on a larger screen. Especially for watching clips on YouTube and so on.

The only reasons I don't use it more often are because of the resolution and the lack of tabbed browsing, although that Wii Tabs thing looks pretty neat. o_o;

I hope Nintendo comes out with a keyboard (or even better, allows USB keyboard support), because typing with the Wiimote is still fairly slow.

I wonder though...if you're using an HDTV, since it runs at a higher resolution, would the browser display in that resolution and not require zooming in to see anything?

I used an HDTV for it the first time and you need to zoom in still.

...Actually, heh, I just got my hands on one, only a few hours after asking that...and it's AWESOME. I'm using it right now...but it's true that the resolution is a bit low, and using the remote gets annoying, especially since it keeps rumbling, but hey, still fun :)
