Nintendo DSi receiving Facebook photo app update today

Forget Microsoft’s forthcoming bid to nab Facebook fiends. This morning, Nintendo announced that the Nintendo DSi would soon — as in after 5PM Pacific, soon — have the power to upload pictures to the popular social networking tool.

According to official release, DSi owners with Internet connectivity will receive an update later today that will add a Facebook icon to the album mode. Any picture taken with either of the cameras, either tweaked with software or naked, can be uploaded to your profile with a tap of the button — provided you’ve linked your profile on the device after the update goes live. So if you find yourself drunk, equipped with a DSi, and only have a few seconds to spare, you’ll be able to embarrass yourself and warn prospective employers in a short amount of time. Awesome!
