News on your Wii? Sure, why not

Launching Saturday.

Wow, you really can do just about everything with your Wii. You can play tennis or baseball, check the weather, fight bad guys...and now, stay informed on what's going on in the world. On Saturday, the "Wii News Channel" will be launching, available on all Wii consoles that have Internet-browsing capabilities through the downloadable Opera browser. News will be supplied by the Associated Press, which has inked a two-year deal with Nintendo. So far, it's just news stories and photographs, but you never know what they might add next. This way, you can take a break from Wii Tennis, check the results of the latest high-profile tournaments, and see how you match up to Roger Federer.

I wonder if there will be a special feature that showcases the latest in Wii stupidity .
