In a Christmas-related mishap I ended up with a Nintendo DS with Mario Kart. Which is a fun game, but what really suprised me is the little thing does Wi-Fi! It took just a minute or two to set up and suddenly I was racing against a stranger from Japan over the Internet. Amazing.

Looks like only a few games support it so far. And the TCP/IP software isn't in the system, but rather in the game; that explains why support is limited. But it works! Total surprise to me.
