    So far I've not heard of any USB devices working with the Wii (aside from the Ethernet -> USB adapter, of course). I'm really looking forward to a keyboard though...my prediction is it'll come out alongside the full version of the web browser.

    I'm disappointed that Nintendo will only allow their brand accessories, just like Microsoft. Hopefully, they won't overprice their accessories like Microsoft. (i.e $100 wifi adapter, $60 wireless headset) They both should mimic Sony in this area.

    Maybe Nintendo could do an update to allow 3rd party use of the usb ports.

    Also, I don't see why you couldn't use a DS as a keyboard.

    they have little things like external fans and lights for decoration and cooling... but that just runs off the usb power not the usb itself...

    Maybe guitar hero's guitar will connect to the USB port, or is it going to be wireless? I hope a kiiboard comes out soon though.
