More things to do with your Wii

It's more than just a spinny-tilty console...

Stream radio
So you’ve tried playing your computer’s music collection through your Wii, right? Now you want new music. The good folk at www.wiihear.com have made a way to get Shoutcast radio streams - that’s live internet radio for those of you in layman land - playing straight through your Wii’s Opera browser. The use of Mario mushrooms as clickable buttons makes us grin.

Secure your Wii points
If you’ve got a load of points stacked up in the Wii shop, then there’s always the possibility that somebody else in your house might waste them by downloading something that you didn’t really want. To remove this risk, set up Parental Controls in the options menu. Choose a PIN and restrict the internet channel. That’s it - just don’t forget that PIN.
