(Associated Press Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TV, movie features on new Wii U delayed until Dec.NEW YORK (AP) _ Some of the entertainment features on Nintendo's new Wii U won't be available when the game machine goes on sale Sunday. Nintendo didn't give a reason for the delay in Friday's news release. In a statement, the company said it wanted the service "to be the best possible experience for all consumers." Nintendo said it was still working to "make it available as soon as possible." Review: Nintendo Wii U blows up dual-screen gamingWhen Nintendo first broached the idea of multiple-screen video games in 2004, many critics were skeptical that players could focus on two images at once. Yet the handheld DS, blending one touch-sensitive screen with a slightly larger video display, became a runaway hit. Turns out the portable DS may have just been a dress rehearsal for Nintendo's latest home console, the Wii U, which blows up the dual-screen concept to living-room size. It goes on sale in the U.S. on Sunday, starting at $300.


Nintendo seeks to shake up gaming again with Wii ULOS ANGELES (AP) _ It can scan zombies, replace a TV remote, open a window into virtual worlds and shoot ninja stars across a living room. It's the Wii U GamePad, the 10-by-5-inch touchscreen controller for the successor to the Wii out Sunday, and if you ask the brains behind the "Super Mario Bros." about it, they say it's going to change the way video games are made and played. "You can't manufacture buzz," said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. "You can't manufacture word of mouth. All we can do is to provide the product and the games to foster some sparks that hopefully enable that to happen. We think we have that with Wii U." Judge approves FTC's $22.5M fine of GoogleSAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ A federal judge has approved a $22.5 million fine to penalize Google for an alleged privacy breach. In doing so, U.S. District Judge Susan Illston rejected a consumer rights group's calls for tougher punishment. Illston issued her ruling late Friday, a few hours after holding a hearing to listen to final arguments.

Amazon's larger Kindle Fire HD ships earlyNEW YORK (AP) _ Amazon has started shipping the larger version of its Kindle Fire HD tablet computer on Thursday, five days ahead of schedule.

Software founder McAfee denies killing neighborSAN PEDRO, Belize (AP) _ Software company founder John McAfee said Wednesday he is in hiding, unarmed and accompanied only by a young woman, changing locations and telephones frequently to stay one step ahead of a Belize police unit he says wants to kill him.

Faull, 52, was shot to death over the weekend on the Caribbean island where both men lived.
