Take my DS out to the ballgame

Wed Apr 15, 2009 12:40 pm

Since we have some folks here who enjoy both real-life MLB and the Nintendo DS, I'm wondering if people know about this and what they think of it (as a non-DS owner myself, I wish it extended to any WiFI client device, but I can understand their interest in keeping it DS-only). I'll probably try one of the rental DSi units just for the heck of it. Right now it's just being tested at Safeco Field (home of the Nintendo-majority-owned Mariners) but they'll probably roll it out to other parks eventually. The Seattle Times had a longer article about it.

Edit: fixed link

I'm pretty sure that first link is a mistake =P

Oops. I've got to stop using Google Chrome as a browser for this stuff until they fix that bug (if you use the right-click menu to copy from the address bar, sometimes it doesn't pick up anything and the previous contents of the clipboard remain... the keyboard shortcut seems to be reliable, however). Of course I should notice when I paste in the URL but sometimes I'm going too fast.

It's probably cheaper to just use DSes than to set up a Wifi network.
