Wow at the green screen effects at times!

I need to get a copy of "touch me" so I can carry it around and ask ladies if they want to play "touch me" and have it not technically be pervy.

It was nice the way they documented the first time Steve Jobs exploited his genius friend Woz. Woz's legacy has taken a back seat in the public mind to Job's. Most people don't even know who he is, while yet another movie about the overrated Jobs is coming out. No Woz, no Jobs. No Jobs, still a Woz, just someone else would have exploited him.
I like how the green button on Simon got lost in the greenscreen.
Without Simon, DDR would not exist.
Great video, but of course you could emulate an all-hardware, chip-based Breakout. Anything, even quantum computers, can be emulated. It doesn't need to be code based. It would just be a hardware emulator. 
+billionthb Depends on what someone would mean by "accurately". The NES hardware has been emulated so close that it even has perfect sprite flicker and slowdown. Would a hardware-based Breakout emulator be perfect to the nanosecond? Unlikely without a major investment that would not be worth it. But it could definitely be emulated to be playable and be indistinguishable by the human eye. 
I think the idea is that it could not be emulated accurately with code
10:12 Pretty sure that's Vincent Price for the Simon commercial.
