Comedic genius Stephen Fry has written an insightful technology related article for The Guardian titled Dork Talk. This weeks edition of the popular gadget column sees Stephen wax lyrically about the Wii.
Nintendo’s recrudescence is yet further proof that the market (ie the population) wants machines that don’t frighten, but befriend. The snarling roars of the feral Xbox and the brutal PlayStation are impressive, but Nintendo understands that while play does involve competition, territoriality and rehearsal for war, it also involves silliness, laughter and fun.
