Lenovo today said Rick Osterloh will leave the company amid an internal reorganization. Osterloh has headed Motorola's efforts within Lenovo since the Chinese firm acquired Motorola from Google in 2014. The company is shifting its internal business groups. The PC unit will now include phablets, tablets, and PCs running Android, Chrome OS, and Windows. This unit will be led by Gianfranco Lanci, who is president and COO at Lenovo. The rest of the mobile business, including Motorola- and Lenovo-branded smartphones, will be led by company presidents Xudong Chen and Aymar de Lencquesaing. Lenovo announced new branding efforts for its smartphones earlier this year. The company is de-emphasizing the Motorola brand, shortening it to just Moto. Neither Lenovo nor Osterloh specified the reasons behind his departure.

Corporatism at its finest. People like Bernie Sanders go on about the evils of capitalism, but really it's corporatism that is the problem. Corporatism is the warped perversion of capitalism. Capitalism is all about competition, but corporatism is all about buying up your competition so there is none or only a small few left. Here Motorola was an iconic brand for over 75 years, but now some giant Chinese corporation bought them up and are basically doing away with them slowly. First thing is to reorganize and lay off tons of people due to duplication of job functions. Giant corporations are the problem, not capitalism.
