    Any that can't think of two reasons for declining sales without mentioning piracy.

    Totally.

    Although lets face it - no one is going to admit they're overpricing their products or marketing poor quality items that haven't gone through sufficient QA. (For example).

    QFT

    Also, the guys over at jmicron, for almost singlehandedly killing off all enthousiast buzz over SSDs.
    Then there's Intel, for trying to block both AMD and nVidia from making any technological progress with petty lawsuits. And what the hell are they thinking giving i5 and i7 their own platform each?

    Oh god, this. The cartridges are practically more expensive than the printers, and the software purposely tells you ink is low even though the things are still half-full just so you go and buy more than you need. ****ing assholes. It's way cheaper to buy the ink yourself and refill the ones you already have.

    Steve Ballmer for charging for Xbox Live Gold membership - it is free to play games online on rival consoles.

    Every Inkjet I've owned has been cheaper to replace the whole printer than to buy ink cartridges for it.

    LOL, QFT... When my printer starts printing like it's low on ink, I start looking on slickdeals.net and other forums like it and try to find a comparable printer that is on-sale/rebate as I can usually buy a comparable model for about the price of a whole set of ink cartridges...

    Only the CEO? I'd fire everyone from Sony that ever released a statement with anything to do with the PS3 or any other console this generation.

    And? You're not forced to pay... What's the price for a 360 now anyway? about 150.00 for a premium, and a PS3 about 280.00.

    TBH, I think there's plenty of reasons you could have Ballmer on there.

    Zune, the money MS has wasted on search, Vista, and those videos on YouTube for starters. And then there's the RROD on Xbox...

    I'd like to fire Sugar himself, but I don't know if he's still in the tech business. I just don't like the guy.

    All the DRM waving CEOs.

    EA and Epic for being crappy companies now, and killing series.

    Ballmer isn't that bad, he's just like Jobs, utterly senile.

    I'd also fire all of the Execs at Chrysler, GM and Ford. But they're not in Tech.

    hector ruiz of amd.. he ran that company into the ground last few years- ex.. the tri core fiasco because of yields.. I mean intel, you might hate em, but they were actually competing with themselves for awhile.. more than you can say for milk mustache nvidia :D

    ruiz stepped down a while ago

    and EA appear to be making strides towards improving

    personnally i would fire none of them all of teh companies have had some fairly major shakeups recently (those that needed them)

    if it would have to be anyone i would ask Via's WenChi Chen to step down. i just think they havnt made the progress they could have done in the last 3 years with the adoption of netbooks and low power computing

    Excellent suggestion.

    Surprised no-one has yet said...

    Jen-Hsun from Nvidia?
    Sim Wong Hoo from Creative?
    Sir Howard Stringer from Sony?

    Any thoughts on those guys?
