Guess what? I just found out that with the latest system update (version 3.0u) for the Wii, you can now use your USB Keyboard to enter text when on the messaging and shop channels. Not all types of USB Keyboards work but some Microsoft, Logitech and Apple Keyboards have been reported to work fine with the Wii. This should save lots of time without having to use the Wiimote to click in your alphabets one by one…. especially true when you need to type a relatively long message to your Wii buddies! This one is a good edition. Try it out on your machine, it might work! Kudos to Nintendo for this useful update.
