Thank you. There will be another one early next week :-)

Iain Baker:
Ever notice that old video arcade cabinet joysticks were left-handed?

Ever notice that joypads today appear to be as well?

Some people claim this is a holdover from a 40-year-old conspiracy designed to separate children from their pocket money. Is this tin-foil hat territory, or might they have a point? We look at the case for and against.

Det. Bullock:
Weirdly enough I'm right handed and used to flightsitcks but apart from being uncoordinated in general I didn't have any problem switching to the left-handed digital stick I use for fighting games.
I guess that while the intention was originally to insure less movement coordination from most people in the end it's just  matter of habit? After all even with a right handed flightstick the left hand on a keyboard must still be coordinated enough to hit the right key combinations and that skill might help a lot with an arcade stick.
