Electronic Arts CEO attempts to express understanding of why his company is again in the Final Four of the Consumerist's Worst Company awards. Is the company really so bad?

It's not like they took one of the best game series ever, Command & Conquer, and ruined it with Tiberium Wars and Red Alert 3 and 4. It's not like they decided to treat everyone like pirates with draconian Always-On DRM and to force Origin on us and put in the terms of service that if you are banned for any reason from Origin you lose access to all of your games. It's not like they took one of the most classic single player sims, Sim City, and made it Always-Online only...I want to know what idiots think that holding stock in EA is a good idea, and I'll bet those same people have stock in Netflix and AT&T as well!

I mention AT&T because AT&T is about to spend $140 BILLION to purchase a majority stake (55%) in Vodafone (along with another carrier who will have 45%) and yet they have the worst customer service, consistently the lowest ratings, and they won't improve their US cell networks and they won't run DSL service to many people so we end up paying MORE for DIALUP than other people do for AT&T Fast Access DSL! I'd love to see the AT&T board live with dialup, they'd commit suicide!
