Jerry-rig Smash Bros. Brawl voice chat because Nintendo won't

Just because the game doesn't support voice chat, doesn't mean you can't.

Just because the game doesn't support voice chat, doesn't mean you can't.

Now that Super Smash Bros. Brawl on launched on Sunday, Ars Technica is kind enough to remind foaming-at-the-mouth fans how they can taunt fellow online players despite Wii's lack of voice chat. In summation:

  • Use a cell phone. Though not ideal, texting and/or voice will get the job done. And also eat your minutes.
  • Conference call. Use a home, business, or online plan to conference call your buddies. Yeah!
  • Use an Xbox 360 open voice channel. Multisystem owners only: call your Xbox Live buddies whilst your Wii is powered on, and have at it. Take that, Nintendo!
  • Use Skype. Get a laptop, fire up Skype, and talk online for free as you pummel each other.

Whatever it takes.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
