Activision Thought $7M for Blizzard was "Insane"

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick says he thought $7 million USD was an "insane" price for Blizzard Entertainment when Davidson & Associates purchased Blizzard back in 1995. He describes a conversation at an dinner with Davidson & Associates where his reaction was: "Are you out of your minds? They’re like a contract developer! They have Warcraft but what else do they have? You paid SEVEN million! That’s insane!" 12 years later Activision and Blizzard merged in a deal reportedly worth $18.8 billion USD.

I'm sorry. Shall I call him a worthless little gnome, instead? No, I kinda like cockbag.

I'd go with douchebag, but cockbag works. People that don't think Kotick and guys like him are douchebags - or cockbags - clearly don't know anything about and how they work. I can guarentee you that the majority of people that work for assholes like that agree with us.

I still think it is wrong to call people you really don't know vile names, but that's my humble opinion.
