I awoke this morn to find my Wii flashing blue--an alarming condition, for the uninformed. My new Nintendo fun box was informing me with its blue light that I had a download available: the new Wii Weather Channel
. After a quick systems update, I found the channel to be simplistic but helpful; I discovered that a light jacket would suffice for outdoor wear. The Google Earth style interface with the spinning globe is also a smooth, intuitive touch, and works nicely with the Wii remote. So far the forecast looks good, both for this modest new Wii feature, and for the rest of the week's weather (carry an umbrella, just in case).
