You've got Miis!

So far, the Wii is amazing. I’m only going to touch on one element of the functionality which is WiiConnect 24.

In short, the Wii is always connected to the internet, even when it’s off. In standby mode, it has the capability to go out into the electric aether and retrieve things for you.

When it does have something for you, the disc slot will pulse with a dim blue glow.

It’s like a mail flag and I’m a little disappointed when I go home and it’s not on.

When it is on, I’ve got a message from my brother, or any one of a number of my friends that have Wiis.

The blue glow is a very simple design decision that means a lot for the user experience.

Now if only my 360 would do the same thing.
