Corporate Altruism?: Nintendo's Wii Remote Jacket Offer

While for a different motivation than Apple's iPhone Credit, Nintendo is giving away anti-slip rubber jackets for any new Wiimotes. This will hopefully prevent certain remote-slipping-related problems and reduce the sweaty feeling one gets after gripping the Wiimote for a long time (I can personally attest to this effect, especially with WarioWare and Wii Boxing). Those who already have Wiis/Wiimotes can request anti-slip covers for free from Nintendo's website, using an interface eerily similar to their wrist-strap replacement program of the past.

While I do not own a Wii, I recommend anyone who has a Wii take advantage of this program and claim their useful slip-cover.
