All day our Wii has been pulsing blue, so I just turned it on to see what it had to say. Looks like there is a new free channel called "Everybody Votes".
OK, so everybody in our house has voted on the four questions-of-the day. Where would you rather live, in the mountains or on the beach? In our house, survey says, if you're a grandparent, you'd rather live in the mountains. All us young'uns want to be on the beach.
Somebody at Nintendo has been thinking about what it means to be a casual gamer. Ten minutes of good weekday family fun, and now the Wii is back off.

Looks like they are working hard at the whole experience! http://fiendishgleeclub.vox.com/library/post/customer-service-gone-shockingly-right.html
You know what they are doing, don't you? They are trying to democratise the USA ;-)
They'll get folks voting here and there on trivial things. Then when the next election comes around you'll think "Hey! Voting is fun - lets do it!"
In my country we have compulsary voting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compulsory_voting. Everybody votes. Well that's the theory, but of course not everybody votes - just those who don't want to cop a hefty fine.
Way to go Nintendo!
