How about this for irony -- a simple hack enables Nintendo's Wii to access a computer's media collection, with the Wii remote (you know, the one with the strap problem) then being used to view photos and browse iTunes playlists on a TV.
Isn't this the convergence of the computer and home entertainment that the big boys (Microsoft, HP, Sony, etc.) have been battling for over the past few years.
(Makes the battles and intrigues of Lord of the Rings seem tame ... better comparison anyone?)
Get the whole story here, and please let me know if you get this to work at home ...
And as if Wii sales aren't giving Sony and Microsoft fits already?
