Are system updates automatic on the Wii and DSi?

    Say I play Super Smash Bros. Brawl with my friends through Wifi. Does connecting to the Internet like that automatically update my Wii's firmware, with me knowing?

    Same question for the DSi, if I connect and surf the net with it, would the firmware update by itself?

    Or does the system need my permission for every update?
    Because of the recent updates Nintendo made (Blocking flashcarts, mods, etc.), I can see why people wouldn't just go to the system options and hit "Update Firmware".

    Basically asking if the DSi updates itself without notifying you...

    Anyone know?
