News Comments > New EA CEO
9. Re: New EA CEO Sep 17, 2013, 22:54 BobBob
 
A fellow had just been hired as the new CEO of a large high tech corporation. The CEO who was stepping down met with him privately and presented him with three numbered envelopes. "Open these if you run up against a problem you don't think you can solve," he said.

Well, things went along pretty smoothly, but six months later, sales took a downturn and he was really catching a lot of heat. About at his wit's end, he remembered the envelopes. He went to his drawer and took out the first envelope. The message read, "Blame your predecessor."

The new CEO called a press conference and tactfully laid the blame at the feet of the previous CEO. Satisfied with his comments, the press -- and Wall Street - responded positively, sales began to pick up and the problem was soon behind him.

About a year later, the company was again experiencing a slight dip in sales, combined with serious product problems. Having learned from his previous experience, the CEO quickly opened the second envelope. The message read, "Reorganize." This he did, and the company quickly rebounded.

After several consecutive profitable quarters, the company once again fell on difficult times. The CEO went to his office, closed the door and opened the third envelope.

The message said, "Prepare three envelopes."

I see enough crime on the 10 pm news. I see how much it hurts people. I don't need to experience it first hand as a virtual perpetrator.

Actually it was Roddenberry's idea that V'Ger is borg.

It makes perfect sense and has a nice circular history to it. Proof please.

He's not the only one. When NASA launched Voyager, the question was posed within the DoD of "What would we do if an unmanned probe showed up on our doorstep and basically asked 'is anyone there?'"

To get an equivalent experience he would need to plug it into a monitor, actual KB/M and etc, by the time he's done he would have most of a desktop anyway. Laptops are for more portable gaming IMO and so far haven't replaced traditional desktops for gaming usage. With the newer consoles likely to drive up system specs and demand I think a desktop is probably the safer bet. I would rather have a laptop or tablet for travel usage and a desktop at home.

I think it depends on what specs the game is made for. Often a game is console spec'ed to the point where even a mediocre laptop can run it at full settings -- as long as its processing power is a step above the next gen console.

Of course, if you absolutely must have the maximized resolution and settings, that can be a problem. I've never played a game where I need everything to glow and the particles to swirl in order to enjoy it. I usually drop the settings a lot for greater frames.

Our benefits are fantastic.

It never lasts. Always act like you will lose your job tomorrow. Save, invest, and take care of yourself. If you feel comfortable with your job security it is a sign that you are neglecting your future.

People also use phones to socialize and send those pictures to each other.

If you have to explain that someone, is it worth explaining?

Blue, just get a fast gaming laptop with a decent replace / repair warranty. I'm sure you can deduct some or all of it based on this site; need to interact with gaming community, etc. A desktop is a bulky, energy consuming, waste of time these days.

I'd rather play a game with a keyboard and mouse, made in the 1990's, than having to use a console's game controller.

No it's not. Being out in the wilds is dangerous and possibly lethal. And all us northerners and people of northern European descent while away the winters in our caves quite comfortably, thank you very much. The only reason most people go out is because they have no other choice. Otherwise they'd be more than happy to stay in their caves and have everything come to them. And is there some reason people can't exercise indoors? In fact most people probably do. And most people in public are assholes and/or idiots and I really have zero desire to interact with any of them more than is absolutely necessary. Going out in public in any city is more an exercise in frustration and anger than anything else. Whilst I do like camping that's not as easy as just going outside and takes some time, money, and effort. So, thanks but no thanks.

I am sorry that you hate life so much. Hope it gets better for you someday.

The difference being that living in an environment that allows you to be outdoors all the time -- changes your social habits, your culture, your interaction with nature, and almost everything else. I've been to many different places. Being forced (or choosing) to stay inside all the time is both psychologically and physically destructive.

And do what? Read fiction? Watch TV? Hang out in bars? John Lennon said it best, "Enjoying wasting time isn't time wasted." Sounds like you just don't really like gaming all that much.

I enjoy gaming. I think it's great in moderation. Instead of long hours grinding away at an MMO with nothing truly gained, and a lot of negatives (poor health, obsession, constantly indoors, and minimal social contact), I'd rather jump into an FPS for a bit; developing some kind skill that carries over to higher levels of mental concentration and physical reflexes. All those things you mention are ... well I live in California. We go outside and enjoy life all-year-round. We don't suffer from the climatic prison effect. Pinging Ant.

People burn out on an MMOs. This is a surprise? I burn out on MMOs within 10 minutes. The only MMO that kept my attention for a longer period was City of Heroes (RIP). You know it's true, psychologically, economically, and physiologically, MMOs will have a negative impact on your life. Avoid any kind of game that keeps you staring at a screen or sitting down for more than an hour out of each day; same advice goes toward using social media.
