It’s a political title, but I don’t really mean wagging the dog in a political way. I’m talking about software. For a while now, various organisations have been talking about how software drives hardware. It’s definitely the case in with games.

But today I saw a print-ad for this combo for sale over at Amazon. What’s interesting is the phrasing:

“A complete integrated digital media solution, packed with tools to organise, edit, preserve and share your digital photos, music, video and data. Comes with the new Samsung double-layer, dual format 16X DVD writer for easy copying/backup to CD and DVD.”

When you buy software and get the hardware that needs it as an added extra, things must be changing.
