I see the terms used interchanged all the time. Please explain the difference

spotpass is content sent from nintendos servers, streetpass is content sent between two passing 3DS consoles.

Spotpass is downloaded over the internet.

Streetpass is a team put together by a real person, and you get it by encountering that person in real life and both of you have your 3DSs in sleep mode.

Street pass happens when you pass by another player, usually on the street. You get to fight a team they created.

Spotpass happens when you pass a wifi hotspot. Each week nintendo adds new things to the spotpass lineup, and you can go to the wireless menu to unlock new characters, maps, and items.
