After countless firmware
posts, it's always nice to bring you news of a Joystiq firmware update. We're calling this one the "Winter Update" and it includes not one, but two new features that have long been requested. First: comment logins. We know, our comment activation emails have long promised the ability to plug in a password to magically bypass the onerous activation system. Now, you can take that password and plug it into our new and improved comment field, bypassing onerous email activations forever
! This password works on all Weblogs, Inc. sites including Joystiq's seven daughter sites and even our buddies over at Engadget.
Second: we've also improved the stiq's long suffering search functionality. Multi-word search? No worries! We've got all your "wii injuries
" right here. In fact, we're liking it so much, we recommend rolling your very own Joystiq Firefox Quick Search
. We'll be fine tuning things based on user feedback (no, you can't change your password; yes, we're working on it), so be sure to let us know how everything works in the comments.
[Big ups to our devs!]
