This is an urban myth.
This API is different from previous efforts in that it manages to prevent the Opera browser from navigating when buttons are pressed. As a result, ALL the buttons (including the DPad, 1, 2, +, and -) can be used by Flash games. WiiCade's latest five games (SnowBlitz, MuscoMorphia, Radioactive Snakes, and Nutty McNuts) all support this new control scheme. Are we seeing the birth of a Virtual Console competitor, or a complement to Nintendo's existing efforts?"

The plan, confirmed yesterday by the California biotechnology company leading the effort, calls for large-scale cultivation in Kansas of rice that produces human immune system proteins in its seeds. The proteins are to be extracted for use as an anti-diarrhea medicine and might be added to health foods such as yogurt and granola bars.
Despite the benefits, some consider the project risky.
But critics are assailing the effort, saying gene-altered plants inevitably migrate out of their home plots. In this case, they said, that could result in pharmacologically active proteins showing up in the food of unsuspecting consumers.
Anheuser-Busch (the nation's largest rice buyer) has prevented the application of gene-altered rice due to concerns customers would not accept GM beer. Should they use their influence to shut this down too?"
"In the USA, the eclipse will already be underway when the moon rises on Saturday evening.
