as the title says, this is a post from a nintendo wii. Really hard to post without a real keyboard, but ok for browsing.

That's pretty cool. I've yet to even touch a Wii... Aren't they coming out with a keyboard for the Wii? I have a mouse and keyboard for my Dreamcast. I've thought about getting the ethernet adapter + VGA adapter and the Dreamcast browser CD and just using it as a internet terminal at home Razz

Ethernet adapter?
You mean the Dreamcast does not have to be restricted to dialup?
I have my neighbors old INT-W200 Webtv terminal. It's a great box but it would be nicer is you could make it boot linux.

Was a fluke really, just blind luck. My wife and daughter were in Target doing some school supply shopping and just happened to be there when they got a shipment in. They were all gone by the afternoon apparently.

Yes, there is an ethernet adapter for the dreamcast. The dreamcast was really WAY ahead of its time.

So how do you like your iPhone so far? Is it really worth the price they are asking? How does it compare to something like a Nokia n800 which seems to have more features/flexibility (besides the phone part) for a cheaper price.

Bleh, I'll never leave my Treo :P

iPhone has some nice features, but it can't do half of what I need Smile

simply put it's the best ipod ever. Hands down.

It's a mediocre phone, and the AT&T EDGE is *SLOW*..

But the prospect of a hand held NeXTSTEP descendant was too much too pass up.

Since a toolchain has been hacked up, the platform has some promise.. Think of it as more of a toy.

But FWIW I like it, but I'm kind of biased...

If hackers manage to get it fully whacked open and you can get REAL apps on it (like ssh), then I'd probably get one ^_^

Lol you & me both. I did the prepay thing so I'm not really tied to AT&T. And from work I get free calls domestic & international on my sprint phone so it really doesn't matter. Did I mention it's a great iPod? Smile
