A week into it and I have yet to connect my Wii to the internet. But I did come across a way to control my Mac with a Wii Remote at Mac Apper. So far it seems the best use for this would be the ability to use a Wii remote for simple java script games or better yet using the wii remote to pilot the flight simulator in Google Earth.
After digging out my wireless router (which can apparently be turned into a $600 router here.) from the garage I tried in vain to establish a working connection. Since I made the complete switch to mac a year ago its been frustrating establishing and continuously troubleshooting their connection, I should probably just get an Airport Extreme, despite using the word extreme in its name I still ogle over the 802.11n capabilities.
I’ve had my Nintendo Wii less than a week. While it hasn’t occupied a large portion of my mind or time, like an explorer searching for the northwest passage I seek the perfect hack to get my Mac and Wii talking. For no other reason than because I suppose. Read about how I came across the Wii, or more likely how it came across me.
