Thwomp writes "I love using my Wii to catch up on my Google Reader feeds and now that activity is officially supported by Google. It's really great to see that the Google Reader team has created an improved user interface optimized for the Wii's Opera browser and Wiimote. You can also try out the Google Reader for Wii in your browser. Google account is mandatory, of course."

    Google Reader is a feed reader, ie. RSS and Atom. It has nothing to do with ebooks.

    Nothing extra exists to stop someone from writing a homebrew version of these features than would have existed anyhow. In fact, the copy protection on the Wii is amazingly weak. It's almost identical to the Gamecube's, and that was weak as well. Everyone else in the industry has put a LOT more effort into protection.

    You're correct about copy protection on the wii being pretty much identical to the gamecube, but the two consoles are worlds apart when it comes to homebrew. The executables on the wii are signed with public key crypto, while gamecube executables are unsigned. You cannot yet create homebrew for the Wii.

    For the near future at least, nobody except Nintendo is going to be adding channels to the Wii.

The rich get rich, and the poor get poorer. The haves get more, the have-nots die.
