OK, here's a thread for people to share stuff they've found out to do with their Wii. Mainly to do with the internet browser I would assume but also any other stuff would be great.

Please feel free to post anything interesting! :D

So, to start off, here's some stuff I've found out about in the latest edition of Future's NGamer magazine, which I subscribe to.

Get MSN on your Wii.
Use your Wii to visit www.messengerfx.com and input your MSN details. That's it, you can now chat on MSN on your Wii.

Get tabs (like on Firefox) in your Opera browser.
Instructions are at http://team-dsx.net/wii

Play mp3s through your Wii.
Download DOT Tunes to your PC and then follow the instructions at www.dottunes.net/wii.html

Access other media on your PC with your Wii.
Download and run the file at www.orb.com on your PC, then use your Wii to go to mycasting.orb.com.

Chat to Second Life players.
Follow the instructions at www.babasucks.com/2006/133/wii-secondlife/

Streaming Radio.
Go to www.finetune.com/wii/ with your Wii and choose the tracks you want to listen to!

Watch telly programs.
Go to either www.alluc.org , www.smashingtelly.com or www.tv-links.co.uk with your Wii.

Play the drums
Follow the instructions at www.bobsomers.com/2006/12/06/wii-drum-machine/

And finally, here's a great website that tells you how to do all sorts of cool stuff with your Wii, including how to make your own wireless sensor bar!

www.wiihacking101.com

Also, not so much a thing you can do with your Wii but...

Go to WWW.mrcloud.com

They make designer T-shirts. They make designer T-shirts with your Mii on them!

Follow the instructions on the website and you can buy a T-shirt with your Mii on it! How cool is that?!

At £21+ though, I'll be waiting a while before I get one. Still, someday, it'll happen, you mark my words!

If you visit this site with your Wii and click on the Miniclip arcade it now takes you straight to the Wii compatible games page! Loads of free games, all on your Wii, many of which are better than the offerings on Wiicade.com!

Groovtastic.

Now this is cool! The BBC have made their iPlayer compatible with the Wii browser, which means you can watch BBC programs on your telly via the Wii. Nice!

Here's a news story.

Edit:

Even more excitingly, it turns out there's to be a dedicated Wii channel for the iPlayer, which will be exclusive to the Wii. Here's an updated news story.

This one. Offtopica 2. Click on the Miniclip arcade on the index page and it'll take you to the Wii compatible games list.

To get the Wii Opera browser, go to the Wii shopping channel, choose "software" and the browser will be available to download for however many points they're charging for it (I downloaded it the day it came out so I have no idea what it costs now).
