Lego Joins the Dark Side

Building blocks craze sweeps through Microsoft

The dark side has today twinged Lego, the toy that every youngster grew up with, as it joins force in a strategic alliance with Microsoft. The two will team up to create Lego-based products; presumably games for the moment, but we're hoping some sort of remote control Windows app for tinkering with Lego Teknics will follow. The deal is unnecessarily complex going by the text of the press release (which is... mind-numbingly boring), and it's difficult to say just what it actually means for anybody involved, but one thing's for sure, our little Scandinavian friends will never be the same again.
