Unsurprising turn of events: Essential looking for a buyout

Thu May 24, 2018 6:27 pm

Imagine a company with no carrier relationship releasing an oft-delayed Android flagship phone with a (flagship-crippling) defective camera as its only product, and then imagine that company tanking less than a year after said uninspired product is released. I mean, that doesn't work for HTC, how could it work for anybody else?

It's not.

With a turnover rate like that with your engineering, failure is inevitable. Half your IP exists in talent. Treat your talent like crap and loose them, you cannot easily replace them if at all.
