Google quietly launched Google Reader specifically designed for the Wii last night -- the new interface even makes use of the buttons found on your Wiimote.  On my initial digging, I cannot find a similar interface designed specifically for the PS3 browser.


Tips and tricks

Google Reader can take advantage of the buttons on your Wiimote, letting you navigate easily from the comfort of your couch:

  • up/down: scroll up/down
  • right/left: next/previous item
  • 1 button: show subscriptions
  • 2 button: show links

When showing subscriptions:

  • up/down: previous/next subscription
  • right: select current subscription
  • left: close
  • -/+: collapse/expand folder


To try the new interface in your current browser if you don't have the Wii, visit http://www.google.com/reader/wii.  In an attempt to be as cheesy as possible, I'm going to call it:  Google Wiider.
