And the shop channel hack no longer works. If you want to browse the web, you have to wait until they have Opera browser available in the shop(rumored to be the 23rd of dec) and it will be free. And wii points used for VC games can be bought as gift card like things in stores like wal-mart, or purchased with a credit card through the shop channel.
