What's going on at WeWork and Uber?

Uber’s CEO backtracks on Khashoggi remarks. Dara Khosrowshahi expressed regret over referring to the killing of the Saudi dissident journalist as a “mistake” during a recent interview, NBC News reports. Saudi Arabia is one of Uber’s largest shareholders.

Uber chief called the murder of Jamal Khashoggi 'a serious mistake'

I may be Dara's biggest public critic, but I really don't think he meant to dismiss the Kashoggi murder. Dara's a lot things I don't love: slow, bureaucratic, process obsessed, lacking in vision and boldness but in the two+ years he's been running Uber, I've never seen him be cruel, mean or insensitive

There are things Uber doesn't deserve a do over for, but his apology and clarification here seem very genuine to me.

Dara Khosrowshahi on his worst day is still better than Travis Kalanick on his worst. A murder is more than a mistake, but Travis committed a million faux pas under his reign and never felt he needed to apologise for any of them.

The un-CEO. WeWork wants T-Mobile's John Legere to be its new CEO, the Wall Street Journal reports.

WeWork in Talks to Hire T-Mobile CEO John Legere

What a boys club! So SoftBank has been a big investor in Sprint for nearly a decade and they brought in Marcelo Claure to run Sprint about 5 years back. Claure and SoftBank's Masayoshi Son get along really well so Son had Claure come on as WeWork's COO. Now it appears that the Sprint-T-Mobile merger

What a boys club! So SoftBank has been a big investor in Sprint for nearly a decade and they brought in Marcelo Claure to run Sprint about 5 years back. Claure and SoftBank's Masayoshi Son get along really well so Son had Claure come on as WeWork's COO. Now it appears that the Sprint-T-Mobile merger has brough LEgere into SoftBank world and now they're looking and shuffling him over there. So incestuous.... Must be the hair!

Worth remembering that who's CEO explains at best a very small fraction of company performance, at least for mature firms. WeWork is younger, and there are exceptions to every rule, but in most companies CEOs aren't as influential as CEOs themselves like to think.

It make T-mobile away from innovation.

Would it make John un-carrier(ed)?

  • With technology being a major driver, cellular companies need cash flow to make sure they are ahead. The merger will consolidate to compete with Verizon and drive technology. The downside is obvious with the rise of cost of most plans in the market.

    The cascade effect will be with third party carriers

    With technology being a major driver, cellular companies need cash flow to make sure they are ahead. The merger will consolidate to compete with Verizon and drive technology. The downside is obvious with the rise of cost of most plans in the market.

    The cascade effect will be with third party carriers. Companies like Metro PCS will see a rise in cost as carriers up there cost to use there networks.

    It is going to be a cycle that consumers will not like.
