You cared enough to post.

I care about people being jealous or envious of another persons success, which is why I posted.

It doesn't take much to be a clueless executive out of touch with consumers, the people under him are doing most of the actual work, just like 99% of other corporate jobs. The higher ups get the pay, the grunts do the work.


You don't get to be a CEO without working your ass off. Kotick started programming on the Apple // and worked his way up from there.

^ Hey, just like politicians & lawyers (especially politicians)...
They make all the money, all the while bemoaning the plight of the poor & middle class(all the while living like kings & stealing from the very people they claim to support)...but when it comes to actual work they have their interns or special hired people do all the work while they go play golf, or fly off on their private jet, or dine with movie-stars, or practice their lies in front of the mirror.


You don't start off with those luxuries...you EARN them with years of hard work.

of course I feel the same way hearing about proffesional sport athletes or musicians.
Sickingly overpayed


Imo Football players deserve every penny they get and shouldn't fall into the Basketball or Baseball bums category who get paid no matter what.

Oh and CEO pay.. what a joke. They make it seem as if a company couldn't have a monkey throw darts an an idea/ direction board provided by quality employees and be as susccesfull.

I could care less what Kotick made. Stop with the jealousy/envy.


If you could care less, then you care at least some measure. What you meant to say is that you couldn't care less.

I actually researched this once...both are now acceptable sayings that are meant to convey the same thought. Literally, though, Nova is correct.

I feel dumber having researched it, but I say it all the time and my wife loves giving me crap about it...had to prove her wrong. :)

Just because enough people get it wrong that they collectively decided it was OK to be wrong, does not make it right.
