Would it be too much of a stretch to call it the Wiither?

Finally, over a month after launch, those little channel screens on the Nintendo Wii are becoming of some use. Today, the Forecast Channel goes live to provide current and future weather information. Provided by Weathernews, forecasts can be accessed using a text list of cities or by using the Wii Remote to zoom in on a 3-D interactive globe. See this blog on Engadget for a demonstration of the new channel.

As for the Internet Channel, Opera Software announced that a trial version of its Web browser for Wii will be available on December 22, 2006 free of charge from the Wii Shop Channel.

The final version of the Opera browser will be available at the end of March 2007, and will be free for all Wii owners to download through the end of June. After June 2007, the browser will be available for download in the Wii Shop Channel for 500 Wii Points.

"Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." -- Steve Ballmer
