At least you don't have to buy cartridges from Nintendo any more. That's was
a killer when I was involved in the console market back in the early 90s.

I agree with where you are coming from on this. End-to-end, every portion is
controlled.

If you re-read Thoughts on Flash, you can see that SJ views the mobile
market as a "next market" after the PC; its clear what the goal is.
