What could make the Wii Better?

There are a few things that would be nice to have on the wii.

More applications like the existing weather & news feed. Such as standalone YouTube (similar to appletv), standalone Flickr (similar to appletv) w/ ability to upload pictures to flickr, streaming stock charts, instant messanging (works with AIM, Gmail, Yahoo, & MSN), a Skype application and a app that plays podcasts & internet radio.

Ability to plug in an MP3 player and have the music play in the background.

Programmable alerts in the background (when a keyword is found in the news feed, when you get an email, when a new podcast or flickr picture is uploaded)

Ability to have videos play within the newsfeeds.
