Philipp Humm, resigned as CEO of T-Mobile USA, Deutsche Telekom’s mobile business in the USA. T-Mobile USA is in a transition after the AT&T deal fell through. Looks like Humm does not have the patience to try to get T-Mobile USA again to the point where it can be sold.
Jim Alling, Chief Operating Officer of T-MobileUSA, will take over the duties of CEO on an interim basis while a search is underway. Humm is going to pursue a career outside of Deutsche Telekom so as to reunite with his family, which stayed back in Europe.
Humm joined Deutsche Telekom in 2005, and was initially responsible for the company’s mobile business in Germany. In 2008 he took on the responsibility of managing the sales and service activities of the European mobile companies within Deutsche Telekom Group. In May 2010 he moved to T-Mobile USA., taking over as CEO in November of that year.
In terms of a potential successor Deutsche Telekom CEO Rene Obermann said: "Now we need somebody who can convert initiatives into market-successes."
T-Mobile USA needs to shift to "real" 4G and finally get the iPhone to turn things around.

Gwyneth Paltrow facing Lawsuit
The famous actress and creator of a website named Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow, is facing a lawsuit by a man who claims she plagiarized his creative phrase. And she is also concerned about her ex-husband’s new relationships.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
