Re: Wiinja - The Wii gets modded.
It made major news on most tech sites. I have Google set up for RSS feeds and two different sites had it as front page news. HD-DVD & Blu-Ray encryption got hacked a few days ago; that also made front page news.
It actually makes for good discussion if those participating are reasonable.
I think it's actually quite lovely that HD & Blu-Ray encryption got destroyed before it got even got started. The problem with DRM & copy protection schemes is that they only hurt the paying customers. The pirates aren't planning on buying it anyway, and it doesn't stop them.
Wii hacking is a little different. IMHO, there is only one reason to mod a console, and we all know what that reason is.
