Great read; thanks Patrick. The marketing section really put to words something that I couldn't - pandering wasn't quite the right word for it. The utter disdain for their users (I won't even call them customers) is something that has saturated the mobile market, and I hope it doesn't spread.

I'm utterly shocked. From his fiancée's twitter, this is what really got to me:
Has a date been set yet for this year's Big Live Live Show Live (or CBSi-renamed equivalent)? I think I remember Jeff mentioning it in a recent video but can't remember for certain. Normally it's been around September 9th, I think, but that's on a weekend, and I'm guessing it'll be on a Friday. Has there been any final word?
Greg just tweeted a blog post that he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. It's up at http://www.ign.com/blogs/greggy-ign/2012/08/09/so-i-have-cancer-who-wants-to-cook-meth/ (that links to his myIGN blog post). The prognosis is very good, but it's still a rough thing to go through.
I wish him the best. Fight it, man.
