Nintendo's Wii just got the update over the wire for the Wii News Channel. Basically, It's a wire service, with categories broken down into International, National, Sports, Arts/Entertainment, Business, Tech, Health/Science. All the feeds come in from the Associated Press. OK, standard so far.
Then you activate globe mode. Whoa.
News is shown city by city, on a 3D map, with thumbnails. Click through the gallery for the guided tour and screenshots. Nintendo just mashed up mapping and news scanning and I think I like it.
