WSJ reports Sprint to name Claure as CEO. Claure is the founder of wireless company Brightstar, and joined Sprint’s board back in January.
News broke today via the WSJ that the deal for T-Mobile wouldn’t happen.
We also learn that Dan Hesse time as the captain of the ship over at Sprint is also over as he will be stepping down.
The crazy news of the day is TMobile customers may still end up being mad as hell. As Softbank has reportedly made a ridiculous offer for the maverick T-Mobile CEO.
(There is also a shocking replacement if that would fall through)
Nothing specific was stated from the source who is a well known investor and holder of Sprint.
But the source stated quote “They are definitely willing to overpay, This guy is Jack Welch of our time”
Pretty strong words. Stay tuned as we will update this story the moment we get more info. And more info is coming tonight after a board phone call.
Thanks to Evan ‘@Evleaks’ Blass tech fans have gotten an early look at some high-profile smartphones and tablets, usually months before they’re officially announced.
Now, after two years of tweets, the tech journalist turned full-time leak artist has announced he’s giving it up.
Evan Blass, who earned a reputation for putting out legit leaks, says he’s quitting because leaking photos and spec sheets on Twitter had proved near impossible to monetise.
He told The Next Web he had tried sponsored tweets, accepted donations and pushing folks towards his website, but found users had little incentive to visit after seeing his pics on Twitter and across the web.
So, as a result, Evleaks, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a decade ago, is Retiring.
I call on all in this Tech Community who have used images from @EVLEAKS and or used his content for the last to years to build your tech sites and give us all something to write about to get the word out.
This indiegogo campaign will help Evan get the proper medical care and treatment he needs to return to the best health possible and possibly one day make a return to this tech community.
You can help by sharing the campaign, Donating to the campaign, or just getting the word out.
