    this is a fairly rediculous question, but has anyone yet tried just plugging a usb keyboard into the wii and seeing if you can type with it? i know it cant install drivers and all, but you never know.. i wonder what would happen if you hooked the ps2/xbox/cube sharkboard into it..

    I've tried two different USB keyboards... neither functioned. Unless Nintendo supplies hardware drivers for different USB components during system updates, they won't work.
