    ive heard rumors about keyboards or whatever that may be coming out later...

    but what did nintendo actually intend the usb ports to be used for? what can they be used for now vs in the future?

    Dude, please use the search function before you post a new thread. This can be found in many many threads.

    Wow. Never did I call you an idiot. Actually, I consider what I said to have been very respectful to you. It's a shame that I couldn't have gotten that same respect in return. I noticed you were new, possibly didn't know any better, and thought I would inform you before some of the other, more pissy, members got a chance to staple your nuts to the wall. Excuse me, sir umrutty. I was unaware that you were so important that I should have jumped on your question as if I was sitting there waiting for it.

    By the way, welcome to the boards. You have your first enemy.

    oh no, internet blog enemy. my week will surely be ruined. just because i havent posted much doesnt mean im new. and i tried to search and cant quite get it to work. perhaps im doing something wrong. perhaps someone would be considerate enough to help me. isnt that one of the main purposes of this board? ive read countless threads where people are just completely rude to someone who is just looking for some help. i knew i would get it myself for my question because im sure its been covered before somewhere in the million other posts. i was just ready for it. so welcome, enemy.

    You've been a member since the 24th. Anyway....
    When you are on the homepage there is a navigation bar at the top. A button there says new posts. That shows all the recent posts in all the categories. On the right hand side of the page in the middle is a search bar. This searches the forums for whatever search topic you enter. If you needed help with the board functions I would have been glad to help you. And "dude" is just the way I talk. Get some confidence and don't take everything so personal. Anyway, this has gone too far. Why are we acting dumb? This little spiff is over, have the last word if you want.

    :scared: oh and btw, he was just helping you out umrutty.

    and umrutty, on your post there is an Edit button, you use it for editing your post and not posting two times.. which would be called double posting

    the USB plugs are just for the Nintendo accessories

    :)

    what kind of accessories?


    and back to leche, i never posted til the other day. again, doenst mean ive never been here before. and with the searching, i did that. searched for "usb" and nothing came up. tried advanced search. nothing. thanks for all your help. perhaps it would be more help for you "veterans" to give a link to the pertinent post for all the questions that the "newbies" ask.

    In the future you will be able to use keyboards and other accessories Nintendo hasn't spoken about. Right now I think you can use it with your digital camera.

    Here are only a few.....

    umrutty, no one was being rude toward you, take it easy.

    he was kind in saying that you should try the search function, and if you did try it and not get anything back from it, how is he to know?

    regardless;

    at the moment not much can be done with the USB ports, i dont know how true the digicam thing is, havent heard it before, but it may be worth a try, probably only likely if the camera is PictBridge compatible.

    there is a keyboard set for release, and this will most likely use one of the USB ports. also an ethernet LAN adapter is out (depending on region, UK ones arent out yet, you have to use 3rd party ones)

    there has been a few things said of a headset, which is a rumour and i dont know how true it is, guess we have to wait and see..

    also anything you have the runs/charges from a USB port can be plugged in (charge your ipod, phone etc..)
