The 25 highest-paid executives in wireless/telecom in 2018

Intel executives like Navin Shenoy, EVP, and Venkata Renduchintala, group president, also didn’t make the cut. … Brian Krzanich, Former CEO, Intel.

It’s that time of year again when we sift through an avalanche of regulatory filings to find the highest-paid executives. In this case, “we” refers to our own FierceVideo Editor Ben Munson, who tracked down the names and numbers for us.

This year, we’ve split our list in two. The FierceWireless list focuses on executives within telecom and wireless while FierceVideo’s list focuses on executives within the pay TV and streaming video industry.

Some notable names that didn’t make the list this year include Cristiano Amon, president of Qualcomm (who made about $13 million in 2018), CenturyLink director and former CEO Glen Post (who made about $10 million in 2018) and Cisco CFO Kelly Kramer (who made about $11 million in 2018). Intel executives like Navin Shenoy, EVP, and Venkata Renduchintala, group president, also didn’t make the cut. However, one who did—AT&T’s John Donovan—just made news for another reason, announcing his retirement effective Oct. 1.

For some compare and contrast, make sure to revisit the highest-paid executives lists from 2018 and 2017.

SpaceX’s Elon Musk Calls Mars A ‘Naughty Planet,’ Tells Red Planet To ‘Behave’

Elon Musk of SpaceX and Tesla playfully told Mars to behave after the Red Planet teased about what it has been doing in the past billion years.

Elon Musk of SpaceX and Tesla playfully told Mars to behave after the Red Planet teased about what it has been doing in the past billion years. The strange exchange between Musk and Mars began after the latter commented on the case of Ann McClain, the former NASA astronaut who was accused of committing the first crime in space.

The playful banter between Mars and Musk happened via Twitter. It began after a Twitter account for Mars commented on the ongoing case involving McClain. According to Independent, McClain’s estranged wife accused her of hacking into her bank account while using a NASA computer aboard the International Space Station.

If found guilty, McClain would be the first person who committed a crime in space.

While on the subject of space crimes, the account teased about the Red Planet’s past.

As previous studies have shown, Mars has gone through rough changes over the past billion years. Through samples studied by NASA’s rovers, it was revealed that Mars appeared differently in the past. Due to evidence pointing to the existence of liquid water on the Red Planet, it has been speculated that Mars may have once been a habitable planet.

However, through the years, Mars went through drastic changes that significantly altered the planet’s surface. Now, the planet appears like a barren desert that’s incapable of supporting life.

In response to the tweet made by Mars, Musk teased the account by calling it a naughty planet. The exchange between the two prompted their followers to post their own humorous comments regarding the relationship between Mars and Musk.

For a while now, Musk has been very focused on colonizing Mars. Recently, the tech mogul brought up the idea of detonating numerous nuclear bombs on Mars in order to terraform it and make it habitable for humans. Musk then backtracked on this idea and proposed sending reflector satellites instead to make the Red Planet warmer.

Aside from these, Musk’s SpaceX is also working on a rocket that will provide commercial transportation services to Mars. The company is currently going through the test phase for the rocket’s prototype known as Starhopper.

Elon Musk To Present First China-Made Tesla Model 3 This Week, Reports Claim

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is now en route to Shanghai, China where he and Alibaba Group co-founder Jack Ma will open the World Artificial Intelligence …

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is now en route to Shanghai, China where he and Alibaba Group co-founder Jack Ma will open the World Artificial Intelligence Conference 2019 (WAIC) Thursday. Reports suggest he may also reveal the first China-made Tesla Model 3.

Musk and Ma will kick-off the two-day conference, and will both appear on stage for a conversation about artificial intelligence (AI).

Musk is famous as a leading opponent of “evil AI,” which he claims might one day create an immortal dictator if it ever escapes human control. He still sees AI as an existential threat to the human race, hence his quest to develop benign AI.

Apart from opening WAIC, Musk is also travelling to China to launch The Boring Company’s China division. And he’ll also visit the massive Gigafactory Shanghai that will start producing Tesla electric vehicles (EVs) by November.

Giga Shanghai is currently testing its car assembly systems and leaks recently revealed it’s assembled at least two Model 3 luxury sedans. All this makes for a pretty compelling itinerary, but news Musk will also unveil the first Made-in-China Tesla EV — a Model 3 — at the opening of WAIC tops all of this.

Chinese media is abuzz with speculation Musk will highlight his WAIC appearance by presenting to the world the first Tesla EV made at Gigafactory Shanghai. This EV will definitely be one of at least two Model 3 sedans caught on camera being assembled at the factory.

One Chinese media outlet reported Musk “will show the first Shanghai brand Model 3” at WAIC.

The same story also praised Tesla for almost completing Giga Shanghai in nine months and said it might be a good idea to make a documentary about this.

“Nine months from open space to the factory to the product,” according to the story.

The most recent leaks depict the immense progress of construction and assembly at Giga Shanghai. They show the interior of Giga Shanghai and, for the first time, reveal Tesla is already making the necessary preparations for trial production runs of its Model 3.

Analysts said the photos show the factory is ready to begin trial assemblies of the Model 3. Considering groundbreaking for this sophisticated factory only began in January, the production of two test vehicles in the space of just eight months is nothing short of incredible.

The speed of Giga Shanghai’s construction is amazing by any standard given the immense size and complexity of the facility. Construction of the massive general assembly building is expected to be completed in a few months.

SpaceX’s Starhopper launch scrubbed at the last possible second

Shortly after the scrub, SpaceX boss Elon Musk revealed the reason for the last-second abort, and admitted he’s a bit embarrassed that things didn’t …

SpaceX was scheduled to launch its scaled-down Starship test vehicle, Starhopper, on Monday evening. Things were looking good right up until the moment the spacecraft was supposed to fire up its engines, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen.

It wasn’t immediately clear what went wrong, but the fact that the launch was called off after the countdown timer had reached T-0 suggested some kind of malfunction. Shortly after the scrub, SpaceX boss Elon Musk revealed the reason for the last-second abort, and admitted he’s a bit embarrassed that things didn’t work out.

In an admittedly vague tweet following the apparent misfire, Musk wrote “Igniters need to be inspected. We will try again tomorrow same time.”

That explanation didn’t satisfy many who were anticipating the launch, and Musk offered some additional details in replies to eager fans. In one tweet, Musk noted that the launch was called off due to what “appears to be a wiring/connector issue.” In another reply asking how something as simple as an ignitor could be wired incorrectly, Musk admitted that the entire thing was “rather embarrassing tbh.”

Igniters need to be inspected. We will try again tomorrow same time.

— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 27, 2019

In any case, the issue would appear to be easy to correct, and Musk seemed confident that things will be in working order for a retry on Tuesday evening at the same time. SpaceX hasn’t tweeted out any new information, but we’ll work under the assumption that the second attempt will take place at around 6:00 p.m. EST.

SpaceX did provide a live stream of the Starhopper launch attempt on Monday night, so we’ll assume the same will be true for the launch attempt this evening. Expect the stream to go live roughly ten minutes before the scheduled launch.
