Meet Sprint’s new CEO, who is buddies with David Beckham, worth nearly $1 billion, and has a huge task on his hands. http://buff.ly/1sjNYhE
The telecom business just got another interesting (and potentially exciting) CEO, and his name is Marcelo Claure. The Bolivian-American entrepreneur, who currently runs privately held wireless distributor Brightstar, was just appointed CEO of Sprint, America's third-biggest mobile carrier. Based in Miami, Claure is close with British soccer star David Beckham (the two reportedly are business partners on...

...and so that is why he's clapping. Trying to get the task(s) off of his hands. Just a guess. I could be wrong.

Tax inversions are a sign of a broken tax code, and reform will mean higher taxes on investors—just like Ronald Reagan did in 1986. http://buff.ly/XFoUZ0
Among CEOs of US companies, it's all the rage to buy a foreign competitor and shift headquarters overseas, a move that allows firms to take advantage of lower taxes abroad and shift profits out of the US. American lawmakers aren't exactly thrilled about how these "tax inversions" erode the US tax base. But executives aren't going to stop taking...

In the future, many of us may not be able to afford to get a human "Thank you, coming again!" http://buff.ly/1qX9KGJ
As more ATMs take over for bank tellers and self-checkout lines replace more cashiers, services provided by human beings will one day become the exclusive preserve of the rich, according to a report on the future of jobs from Pew Research Center. It envisions a future just 10 years from now, in which robots will...

Is your selfie yours? How about this monkey's? http://buff.ly/1ocNT0H
When a monkey commandeered a nature photographer's camera on a small Indonesian island a few years ago, the results were extraordinary. Among the images captured by the crested black macaque were a few amazing images of himself. Those monkey selfies made headlines back in 2011, and two of the photographs made their way to the Wikipedia page for the...

Who are these people? http://buff.ly/1sfYQgn
AOL has spent the last decade—since the broadband era really took off—trying to build a business around online advertising. But its legacy dialup internet subscription business is still generating a big portion of its sales—and most of its profits. At the end of June, AOL had 2.3 million subscribers, paying an average of $20.86 per month,...

Former US president Bill Clinton once said that trying to control the internet in China was like “trying to nail Jell-O to the wall.” China may have done it. http://buff.ly/XHcaRq
For the past four years, China's government and its far-reaching bureaucracy have embarked on campaign to take back China's weibo microblog scene from the masses, who have been using social media services to expose corrupt officials, circulate news, and air their opinions. And it's working. According to a new study by media researchers based in China and the US, the government's 176,000...

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings humble-bragged on Facebook today. http://buff.ly/XFv6jK
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings humble-bragged on Facebook today: He's right. (About the financials, at least—Silicon Valley, an HBO sitcom about tech startups, was really bad.) Here's how HBO's subscription revenue compares to Netflix's revenue from subscriptions to its streaming video service: That reflects Netflix's rapid subscriber growth in recent years. Over the same period, HBO subscribers have been...

Rape isn't a fashion statement. http://buff.ly/1ohcr83
Raj Shetye is likely India's most talked-about fashion photographer at the moment. His latest shoot, depicting a woman attacked on a bus by a group of men, and entitled "The Wrong Turn," has generated outrage in India and abroad for echoing the horrific 2012 gang rape on a New Delhi bus, which cost the victim her life. The case, known...

We highly recommend you watch this in full-screen mode. http://buff.ly/1tXrlDr
Who wants to watch Martha Stewart's garden grow and lavish American wedding parties when aerial photographers are capturing surfers on mountainous swells with drones? Hawaii-based photographer Eric Sterman used a GoPro camera attached to a DroneFly Phantom 2 quadcopter to shoot surfers take on towering waves during two days at Jaws —one of the world's most famous surf breaks, on Maui's north shore. (We highly recommend you watch this on full-scre...

The reasons are ages 14, 12, and 9. http://buff.ly/V1R26z
The "work-life balance" question is something women in the workplace (even the Fortune 500 CEOs) get asked all the time, but male executives almost never hear it. Certainly Max Schireson, the CEO of database company MongoDB (formerly 10gen) never did. But after asking himself the same question, he decided to step down from his job, for some...
