My, my. Foreign companies really seem to want to amuse us with their naming right now.

Recently, Fraser found the unfortunately-named job site Jobby.

Now, as Chris points out, Nintendo has named its new games console the Wii. That’s pronounced �wee�, folks. Clearly, somebody didn’t do their culture research. I’m looking forward to the handheld version, the Wee Wii.
