Does anyone else see 24 connect as alittle "big brother" ish? I donít know if I want Nintendo peeking at what games i play when, or what i even do to my wii. You can bet I will be one of the first to disable this option, whether its possible with the shipped os, or if I have to change the os, and thus giving up online play. A machine that thinks while itís turned off is not something that makes my jump up for joy. Its frightening. Outright freighting.
Donít get me wrong, the wii sounds awesome, but I hope Nintendo isnít doing data collecting with this 24 connect. I would be very displeased.
You may wonder why Iím paranoid, but ask yourself, if your console is connected 24 hours a day, whatís stopping them? I for one am going to be very carefull setting up my wiiís connection to the internet.
Although, the gamecube was hacked, without any hardware mods too. The Game cube had the problem of a slow Ethernet connection, but with the wii, it would have to be at least 100mb or maybe even 1000mb, and thus the problems with the gc hacks is no longer a issue.
