    Seriously!!! What do the USB ports do?!

    I still haven't gotten an answer yet from anyone and maybe the details aren't available yet...i know they charge iPods and look very fashionable - but what do they do?!

    thank you for understanding my sense of humor.
    but i was trying to help by informing that USB does more than charge an iPod.

    you can get a wii LAN adapter to connect to the internet if you do not have wireless...

    Am sure they will release other bits and bobs further down the line

    God, i've read so many Wii articles and bulletin boards over last few days! :P

    Obviously I did get it, considering I put an "lol" at the beginning.

    so, that is a basic function that should be included in the box, it takes about 2 hours to program a music player, and about the same amount of time for a photo player, if i could just hook up an external hard drive to my wii i could play music without my loud 360 fans

    You do realize you can view pictures and play music via an SD card right?

    hmm... I guess they can do whatever they want. The Wii is just a bunch of components put together like a PC, but with standardised hardware and software and since it is hooked up online then they can update everything whenever they want.

    They'd have to be careful with doing too much though as they will start opening up holes for the modders :P + virus writers etc...

    Will be very interesting to see what they come up with. Using the spare processing capacity of the Wii as a super computer for cancer research?? or maybe even redering graphics?? They could sell the processor time and give Wii users some Wii points in return or even setup a lottery so that if your Wii processes something that in turns leads to a discovery then u get a bonus! lol
