Among the many updates contained within the most recent firmware for Wii - including a lovely digital clock and some changes to the Wii Shop - comes the surprise news that USB keyboards can now be used to type entries into some Channels.
is it me or does anyone really care?
because I'm sick of typing with the Wii-mote. I used the text function to help speeds things up, but its still annoying. Kudos to this confirmation. I will be getting a keyboard.
That's INSANE! If they add Internet channel support it'll be absolutely perfect...
there's already a report on this... http://www.n4g.com/wii/News... Ahahaha! *Meeeooooowwwwwtrue-tastic!*
just f'n die.
this is pretty much a standard requirement now.
I also made an article linking to SPONG and it failed approval!!! GRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
i dont really need a keyboard because have my wii remote
i thought you could do that already
at least with the update passwords come up as "*****" so i dont have close my curtains every time i enter my credit info to buy vc games. and with the key board, which i dont think i'll need much considering i do most of my internet stuff on my laptop, an attentive person wont watch which buttons i'm selecting. regardless, i'm glad that nintendo is still finding new ways to improve the wii. i hope in the future that they will add the possibility of new skins for the display and possibly tune up them graphics like what i've heard the ps3 is doing with their firmware updates. actually, i really wish that the big N would implement an update suggestion box to give users things they really want! Bring me Bubble Bobble!
Now all they need is support for Bluetooth keyboard (the controllers use bluetooth, so why not?!) and support for chatting online! ...Is it not?
