I've always liked Affleck but yeah, there would literally be about a million better choices than him for Batman.
And I would so love to be a fly on the boardroom wall at MS. Was Ballmer forced out do you think? I think he was. Shareholders have been complaining long and loud for years to get rid of him, and the Failbox 180 seems like it was the final straw that broke the camel's back.
Question is, are they going to be stupid and keep trying to compete in hardware with Apple, Sony, et al. Or will they be smart and go back to their core competencies?
