Top 10 Paid Executives in the U.S.


The most interesting one is  Clearwire CEO, Bill Morrow.  I have been covering them since the launch of Awesome DC.  Given the company is losing money, burning about $500 m annually,  far from being profitable,  their mommy, Sprint just announced they are considering LTE as their future strategy; which in a way, it’s the sign of slowly saying goodbye to all the $$$ billion they already invested in WiMAXBill is number 6 in the list!

Either I am clueless in this business or someone is on crack at  Clearwire 🙂 Which one is it?
