That has to be the dumbest CEO I've ever met. They need to fix all the other problems with the nook before they even think about games. How about fixing the freeze problem, not reading My Documents files, battery life, etc. Games is at the very bottom of my list of things they need to make the nook do.
It was a poor interview at best, but I can't beleive he even mentioned that they have programmers working on games when the nook has so many other problems.
Sheeeesh!!

I think it will be just puzzle games like chess or sudoku
I think they will add e-mail client and to-do or calender app
I hope next update will improve the speed, improve
the ability to read PDF files and bring good futures

Yes, that was an inane interview. My view is that I do not need my nook to have any games. I don't even need the music player it came with. What I do need is the ability to sort books into folders, extended battery life and, yes, improved PDF handling.

Games aren't going to be very fun on a colorless e-ink display with no good controls...
