    Considering what was spewing from him during E3 and after, I can't say I'm surprised.

    It's official.

    For executives who don't get good PR Microsoft already has a really good option, it's called the door. Bye Don, at east at Zynga you won't have to keep up the pretense of service in your unceasing efforts to screw people.

    I actually think Balmer's not too bad. Sure, he gets overexcited about things, but that's no biggie. We'll see who they put in Mattrick's place I guess.

    It surprises me anyone wants anything to do with this guy, while working at EA his own company was acquired by EA of course nothing fishy there *cough*
    EA doesn't exactly have +Rep with consumers, then he joins Microsoft and we all know how he put his foot in his mouth there. He should fit right in at Zynga judging by the way they operate.
