How about friends list? so you can basically add people to your  
friends list via email.

The Nintendo Wii has a serial number built in and you can send a  
friend request to another Wii or to any other email address. When  
sending a message for the first time it asks for permission to be  
added (one way to stop spam).

You can then email pictures to your Wii.

An easy way to install new software would be to be able to email it  
to your phone and use the phone's wifi to download the email. Of  
course security would have to be present to stop it installing  
anything received in an email.
