"Now Count up your Sins"- Kamen Rider W
Eagerly waiting for: Monolith Soft Wii U game
Does anyone know if Wii Ware can be transferred to the Wii U?
I don't think that there have been anything about the transferring of anything from the Wii Shop Channel Purchases. Though I would say that they might announce a system transfer thingy like what they did with the DSi shop purchases to 3DS. That would be nice anyways since that they made it impossible for you to transfer anything you bought on the Wii Shop Channel from one Wii that you saved on an SD card to another Wii.
But anywho , I think that they would rename the system anyways even though there are rumors about it. That being since that they would clear up all the confusion so that there wouldn't be any one stupid enough to buy a Wii U game thinking that it would work for the Wii that they have already. It would be best to since that is what happened with the 3DS. I do though think a name like "Revolution HD" since that it would be perfect to describe the system in a short , simple name.
Making the general color something other than white would also help with diffrentiation
Regardless it helps , they could slightly stylelize the design too, if its nessescary.
... You make it sound like people are being duped into the whole color thing
I would say that they might try something other than white for the Wii U's color when the final design comes out. That is since I guess Nintendo would try to advertise the Wii U as something for both hardcore and casual gamers alike. A color like "Timberwolf" or something along the way of a gray would be perfect if they want to capture the audience they want. The main reason is that it would combine the white color which would associate to kiddy stuff with the black which would associate to stuff that is hardcore. But hey , They could go back to the N64 era and have every color of the rainbow if they wanted to.
EDIT: Just have seen this over at GoNintendo. It's actually Sony's rip-off of the Wii U. Knowing how Sony just loves to copy Nintendo's ideas , I wouldn't doubt that Sony would have something like this for the Playstation 4 when it comes out.

That patent was filed in 2010, so it is anything but a "rip-off".
If anything, Sony's already done such before the Wii U with PS3/PSP Remote Play.
But then again , The idea for the Wii U was conceived by Nintendo back in 2008. Just gonna go and head to back up this with the exact interview that states this before there is any doubt about it. So without further ado , Here's the link to that interview which stated that.
Proof for that the Wii U was conceived in 2008.
Other than that , It's just Sony's thing to rip-off anything and everything these days including a third party Wii accessory that I saw at my local Big Lots. But anywho , That is difference is that 2010 < 2008. Which by the way is that Sony was 2 years late when it comes to that matter. Though I do wonder if Apple had the idea for the iPad before 2008.
Shouting about who ripped off who and trying to denigrate one company because they produced something similar to another is an uninformed schoolyard discussion. Nothing more. Sony has R&D people just like Microsoft has R&D people just like Nintendo has R&D people.
Were you to isolate all three and cut them off from any information as to what the competition was doing, chances are that all three are smart enough that they'd eventually arrive at the same technologies - motion control, touch screens, whatever - independent of one another. They might execute it differently, they might introduce it on different schedules, but the point remains.
The amount of merit found in a discussion of "who copied who" is minimal, at best.
