Shame the wii dont support 1080p/i otherwise it would be a great little media streamer!
It's connected via bluetooth.
I tried that years ago with and discovered I was now a very small fraction of a tiny percent as good, which was sadhave just installed mame to relive some of my mispent youth
I used to be able to do things like wrap around the Asteroids max score. Got outvoted, but I didn't want a WII because I was genuinely *still* sulking over the time several eons ago when I'd been playing one game of arcade Donkey Kong for a few hours(!) and on the n100th time around instead going "Tada! You're Terrific! Game Over [now please go away so I can make some money]" it gave me around 5 seconds to get Mario all the way up those ramps. You couldn't even get up the first ladder in 5 pigging seconds... and when I'd let my bloated collection of lives die, it just crashed and lost my lovely record high score.
Mame? It's just not the same as when: a) you're paying, b) you can't flick pennies up the reject slot to mitigate a.

To collect dust.
What I used to do [ and please rememebr this was a LONG time ago when I was a kid ] - I used to bunk off school with my mates, get the train up to Heathrow - [ one of the terminals ] - go to the arcade [ which had all the games etc on a nice carpet ] - you know whats coming next.... We used to rub our feet on the carpet, build up a static charge, and then stick our fingers on / in the metal slot where you had to stick your 10p in. 8 times out of 10 instant credits !!
Or...........circular knitting needles make great devices to stick down the slot, locate the micro switch / hook which the 10p used to knock, once latched on a quick up and down movement used to create instant credits !!!
Or.......a bar magnet when playing on the fruit machines so the reels didn't move when you got a winning line.....FREE money !! These days you can't even stick a hanky up a reject slot in the phone boxes.....no fun.
Still I grew up ok in the end didn't I ?
Been mucking about with a Wiimote and the interactive whiteboard idea today. Everywhere I found it said you can't use MS's bluetooth stack to pair the devices, but they were all using Windows XP. I've been playing today using Windows 7 and paired the Wiimote without installing anything extra. Then just ran the WiimoteWhiteboard software and I had an interactive wall! Thought it may be useful for some to know.....
