Last Saturday the Wii News Channel went "live" and it is an interesting addition to an already innovative console. Yes, you can get your news fix from a variety of sources but the fact that it is a couple of clicks away while you are gaming makes it attractive to me. Add to that the fact that the interface is sort of a "Google Earth meets CNN" and it's another reason why Nintendo is showing the world that it's more than just about the pixels and the audio. A nice enhancement, IMHO. I've noticed that there are still some growing pains with the channel but things will get better over time. It's very functional right now but I had to smile when a news item involving Ghent, West Virginia showed up on the global map as being close to Warsaw, Poland. I guess someone on the team has to revisit Geography 101! My two Ghents.
