    Good. Now we (and our HDTVs) can all feel safe.

    But will they send those that have the old straps new ones?

    Most likely they will ask you to register your serial number and send you out a replacement new style improved wrist strap to absolve them of any lawsuits. I believe Nintendo will do the right thing in this matter for it's customers. I'm sure that they are thankful that the worst problem is with the wrist straps and not a problem with the console itself.

    Are the original straps similar to the small straps that attach USB drives to their straps?

    Yeah they are something like that, tiny and for such a heavy remote not enough!

    So, presumably, the next shipment of the Wii will have these new straps?

    Looking at the pics they don't look overly thicker than the other remotes. I think nintendo should add a gold chain and market them to flava flav.

    Right. I don't see much difference either...
