Are you suggesting that Einhander doesn't really deserve to have hot water? Because I can fully agree with that.

It's less a lack of faith and more an unhealthy competition between different branches within MS. The iOS software division within MS is frankly bad for a lot of Microsoft's other product lines, but for some reason they're organized in such a way that it's possible. Better leadership on up high could prevent that though.

Yes, that's right. What I meant was for the signature control of RE until Code: Veronica, I guess... Since RE4, the controls become over the shoulder cam rather than classic tank.

No but I will say videogames have been an excepted part of the popular entertainment culture for decades. Hence why i showed those prints ..

not a this a defacto list of pop culture things and as with that chap from saved by the bell I would like t think not. Tbh I would have included a game boy over the mega drive . I guess the artist was a sega man. Anyway obviously not everything there is pop culture of the 90s but a recognisable 'things' like gazza crying, mr blobby etc (those are obviously Brit things).

what ever the core reason it a real sign of the times, i mean a few years ago if someone had said MS Office is coming to an iPad 99% of people would have lol'd in your face. Its a great move by MS tbh as the tablet is killing the laptop/desktop in corporate land where they sell most Office software. So they need to port to keep the license sales going .. very very clever move .. and they will make some serious $$ as not only will they sell bucket loads to ipad users but even more people in corporate land will switch to tablets once its out.
