are there any planned updates to the o.s. or anything to add new channels such as.

1. A media player.(vids and music) right now im stuck with myspace music and things like that.
2. An irc client. right now im stuck using java chat.
3. instant messengers. havent gotten anything to work through the browser yet.

are they allowing any third party software. or does it all have to be developed by nintendo?

the wii is great. i cant wait for blazing angels to come out. for now ill stick with wii sports unless i buy one the fps's out. I think the wii has great potential if they develop some software to really make me use my desktop even less. Is there anywhere we can submit helpful hints to development crew. Like for instance when using the keyboard if i wanna get rid of say half of whats in the text field. I have to hit the backspace button a shitload. It'd be nice to just select what you want gone and then just hit backspace and bam its gone. thanks guys.
