The most noticeable change:UPDATES AND UPGRADES
We may without notifying you, download updates, patches, upgrades and similar software to your Wii Console and may disable unauthorized or illegal software placed on your Wii Console to ensure that your Wii Console is operating properly and efficiently, comply with applicable laws, assist law enforcement, protect us and our customers, or prevent the use and distribution of software obtained through improper channels.
I understand this is most likely because of the Homebrew Channel, but this concerns me greatly with regards to the part of the agreement that already existed in regards to everything we buy on the Wii Shop Channel.
Nintendo's EULAArticle 12: Expiration and Termination of Agreement
* You may cancel your Wii Shop Account by contacting our customer-service department or by following the instructions in the Wii Shop. If your Wii Shop Account is canceled or terminated for any reason, you will no longer be able to use the Wii Shop. You will lose all downloaded Content and forfeit any rights to any unused Points, which become our property.
* You may terminate this agreement by removing Content from your Wii Console, discontinuing use of the Wii Network Service, and forfeiting any rights to Points in your Wii Shop Account, which become our property.
* We may terminate this agreement, or any portion thereof, at any time, for any reason whatsoever. Such termination will void any licenses granted in accordance with this agreement and may prevent your use of the Wii Network Service.
So now they really can just take away everything we downloadably bought while we sleep whenever they felt like it. Maybe they could before, but this really hammers the point to everyone.
Now I wonder what happens to the channels we've kept on an SD card. If the above scenario were to happen, and if we were to try to put them back on the Wii's main memory, would we be denied?
November 15, 2007: Nintendo USB Connector drivers for Vista. Manufacturing of the Connector is discontinued.The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector can now run on Vista! You just have to have the latest version of the drivers. That would be 1.06.
However, the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector has been discontinued! At least for now, it seems.
All the info's here, including the 1.06 version, straight from Nintendo.
