    This was management at Blackberry? I didn't know you could be top dog as a tattoo wearing, scruffy hipster?. His partner looks like a skater boy. I must be in the wrong place, 'management' to me is old republican white men icon_lol.gif

    LOL. $500K in "total compensation". So his annual salary was probably $80K - $100K. The rest are stocks, revenue share, and unicorn poop.
