HAL owes its name to IBM

Talk about a unique little detail. This comes from a recent Iwata Asks...

Iwata: Ubisoft was named after Ubiquity because you wanted to be everywhere in the world and HAL was named as such because each letter put us one step ahead of IBM! (Laughs)

Now that's pretty damn funny. I wonder if IBM knows the story behind HAL. I mean, they work with Nintendo quite often!
