Last year, Nintendo tried something new at Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners. If you brought your Nintendo DS to the field and paid a $5 fee, you could use your DS to access the scores of other baseball games, check out team standings, chat with other Mariners fans, and play trivia and minigames. This year, Nintendo is making it even better: the service will now be free. …

You do have to download the software from one of two kiosks or one of fifteen download stations situated throughout the stadium, but after that, everything will be available. There will even be an in-stadium live video feed and, using the touch screen, you’ll be able to order snacks and drinks to be delivered to your seat. You can see what the service looks like in this Youtube video; it’s pretty slick.

As Glenn Reynolds says, more like this, please.
