If–like me–you through long-term concerns to the wind and grabbed an HTC One M8, well good for you. It’s one heck of a phone. But the truth is that the company behind it has has so much bad luck over the past couple of years that it’s long-term prospects aren’t great. Today’s news brings word of not one but two departures: Ford Davidson, Senior Director (former Dashwire Founder) and Scott Croyle, Design Lead. Scott’s transition will be more gradual and Ford’s looking to get back into the startup business ASAP.
These are tough losses. Scott brought us the greatest designs, including the M8 while Ford was behind the user setup tools. These aren’t insufferable losses, but they’re going to make big waves.
