Neener Neener, You’re Making Gobs of Money. Oh, Wait.

Leo Kelion, writing for BBC News:

Jony Ive appeared to attack the Moto Maker scheme in an interview in which he criticised the idea of giving consumers huge choice over how their handsets were made to appear.

Rick Osterloh, president of Motorola, told the BBC his company had a “different philosophy”. And he criticised Apple in turn, calling its prices “outrageous”. […]

Mr Osterloh of the scheme: “Our belief is that the end user should be directly involved in the process of designing products. And frankly, we’re taking a directly opposite approach to them [Apple].”

Directly opposite results, as well.
