I hope Nintendo really pushes the "extras" for the Wii. The Wii form factor lends itself to all sorts of extra uses beyond gaming, and I for one would like to see Nintendo take some serious real estate in the larger "electronic household" market.

I don't think I'll bother to check the weather on my "first" Wii, since it will be attached to my TV which is attached to cable which is already attached to the Internet... but I could see having more than one Wii in the house for just such a purpose. With the browser and few key "every day information" type extras, the little Wii could be a very useful multi-tasker.
