    lack of online capabilites? The only thing that the internet lacks on the wii is it has too many bugs, like freezing or going back to the home page when i dont want it too, some pages wont load after i click it, and some things wont load up.
    But then again this is the trial version or the first version, so im pretty sure they are fixing these bugs and it wont happen in the final version.

    I have a lot of confidence in the Wii's online capabilities, and I'll tell you why: The Wii is the ONLY console on the market right now which is MAKING money. The Wii nets Nintendo around 50$(US) a console, compared with a loss of around $200-$300 for both the PS3 and the 360 (this is taking the sale price and subtracting the estimated production cost per unit). That translates into capital that can be used for a lot different things, and I would bet with the impressive state of Microsoft's online system, that would be the next target for Nintendo.

    just curious, for the google browser, does it appear in full screen? On my 58" HDTV, it seem to just be in the middle of the screen and a black outline on the sides and the top.

    Friend Codes: Pain, but keeps unwanted people getting on your lists.

    Online Multiplayer: None so far. Only 2 games at this point I know even planned are some Pokemon game and Mario Strikers. Neither of these I would buy. I realize people say give them some time, but this is sad. They didnt even make the SDK available to 3rd party software companies until after the 11/19 release.

    Forcast Channel: Very cool idea, but had to wait a month though for a very simple application. Cool, but I never use it.

    New Channel: Still not implemented. Again, this should not be a hard application to make.

    Internet Channel: Cool I can surf on my tv, but I rarely do it. Its too hard to read the words even on my 50 inch.

    Update-able firmware: Great feature and the only one used to its potential so far.

    The online throws so much more potential out there, but Nintendo seems to be dragging their feet on implementing it.
    I guess you miss that fact that Battalion Wars and AC are going to be online plus many others.

    All you are doing is complaing (all of you) Ninty has gave us a kick ass sytem, it was only fully launced like over a month ago, give them a chance fking hell.

    News channel is out on Sat.

    Trading my Wii again! Come on home 360!
    Games: Metroid Prime 3, Super Paper Mario, Ghost Squad, Link's Crossbow Training + Wii Zapper, Geometry Wars, Battalion Wars 2

    the friend code thing is important. it filters out riff-raff and ensures that only two people who are aware of one another are able to communicate. but thats just my opinion though.

    overall the online function needs... more...

    just my opinion though...

    exactly, going to be online. and that is where they messed up in my opinion.

    i 100% agree the wii is the best console i have ever owned, i highly recommend it to all my friends. but my opinion is nintendo messed up on their implementation of online stuff. doesnt mean, i hate nintendo. doesnt mean i hate the wii. doesnt mean i dont go home and play zelda and have a great time.

    in 3-6 months, this wont be any issue. and it obviously isnt hurting sales. but it could have been handled "better"

    What about Mario Kart DS? They had that random race match up... it just grapped random people from around the world and you started racing!
