  • "Will this run on my Wii?"
  • This year, my Powerbook become a MacBook Pro and now my likely console upgrade has turned into wee.
  • I love Nintendo, and I think the new console is going to rock - but naming it "Wii" is like naming your kid Richard when your last name is Head; you're just gimping them unnecessarily from the start.
