    you can go on any site. However It takes forever to type unless you have a USB keyboard plugged in. Also the browser has rather crappy flash support.

    yep what Jake said but I think Nintendo may negotiate to get an update on wii to support the latest Java and support flash 8 I hope they may do that so all wii internet surfers will be happy.

    I haven't bought it yet, but I will use it heaps especially for dailymotion and youtube yay!!

    Edit: Can i watch videos that are stored on my wii SD card or i only can use it for photos? I haven't noticed that wii has any sort of multimedia player built-in.

    Same here - plinked around for a bit, checked out a few of my regular sites (which looked pretty good). I even paid for it :)

    I did use it to show some carshow pics to my Dad (nothing beats showing them on a 50" set). I haven't tried the USB keyboard update which I imagine makes things much better.

    The only "non-Game" function we've used a few times (and really like) is the photo album using an SD card - the resizing and rotation is fast, and better than using the camera (since it has a nice remote).

    We picked up our Wii after the free trial ended - figured it was worth foolin' around with for a bit for $5.

    Its decent.
    I posted on here while I was on the channel a few days ago when I was not able to use the comp.
    If I want to do big things, or numerous things I go to the computer.
    But if I am feeling lazy and want a quick internet fix, its there and works pretty nicely.

    I almost always use the Internet Channel on my Wii, which will hopefully be improved to that of a pc browser.
