Perhaps the timing is a coincidence, but following the absolutely disastrous SimCity launch, in which EA's focus on DRM seemed to get in the way of actually making a product that works, it's been announced that CEO John Riccitiello is stepping down at the end of the month. This is clearly not a planned succession situation, because the company's former CEO, Larry Probst, who ran EA from 1991 until 2007 when he handed it over to Riccitiello is taking over as interim CEO as they search for a real replacement. Perhaps they should look for someone who recognizes that providing a good product that people want to support is a better goal than "stopping piracy." Just a suggestion.
There's a good video, link to details on the exploit, and some other general information about what's going on. Worth a few minutes of your time to at least be informed!
