Barra is only a year into his job as leader of Mi’s
internationalization efforts, but he’s already “sick and tired” of
hearing his company derided as an Apple copycat. He sees Mi as “an
incredibly innovative company” that never stops trying to improve
and refine its designs, and the allegations of it copying Apple
are “sweeping sensationalist statements because they have nothing
better to talk about.”
This was apparently said with a straight face by an executive from the company that put up this slide at the end of a product introduction event today.
