In an interesting interview on the show CEO Exchange (which has not yet aired), Sony Chairman CEO, Sir Howard Stringer, lets loose on a myriad of Sony's challenges and recent failures. Here's a sampling of the more interesting topics that Sir Howard comments on:

The article does not mention arch enemy Microsoft or the Xbox 360.
