Hesse makes a personal pitch for Sprint
Two updates on Washington's big but crestfallen and departed technology and telecom companies today:
Dan Hesse, having taken a series of actions to bolster Sprint, is leading a new advertisement to promote the company's Simply Everything plan, an unlimited calling/data/other features plan that costs $99.99 per month. Hard to think it's not part of an effort to improve the company's customer service image.
Do you buy it?
Sprint announced this year it would move its headquarters from Reston to Overland Park, Kansas.
Meanwhile, AOL, with a major presence in Dulles and top officials still in the Washington area, seems forever destined to confront internal squabbling.
Two influential technology blogs raised questions about its $850 million purchase of No. 3 social networking site Bebo this week.
TechCrunch reports that AOL was "desperate" for a social networking play, and it wasn't necessarily Bebo's first choice.
And Silicon Alley Insider says that several top AOL execs opposed the move.
