Well, why's Netflix on a console? Or Twitter?

I find it hard to take the Wii seriously when they give the apps stupid names like 'Wii Street U' instead of 'Google Earth'.
Let's just discuss, not fight.

A version of Google Earth that you have to pay for? Is it 2005 again?

Street view is outdated on pc for my road too, its not suprising really it would cost them a hell of alot of money to have a car zoom up my street every year.

I think the app is pretty good and the street view on the gamepad is seemless,
Should include get directions etc and have nfc built into the app so i can tap my phone to the gamepad and the routes i am looking at save to my phone.

When will they launch that brilliant thing that they had on the Wii where you voted if you liked cats or dogs better, whether Plan B was better than Plan 9 from outer space, or Paedo or victim?

I don't remember people complaining when they introduced that channel that gave you predictions and special words of the day. It was better received than the discovery of GB cameras in the female employees toilets. Though a loo roll shortage did find a use for those GB printers.
