Serial failure Hugo Barra leaves Xiaomi

After failing to, well, do anything really at Xiaomi – their sales figures are (very) down, their MIUI platform has gone precisely nowhere – serial failure Hugo Barra has announced he’s leaving them and returning to, nowhere in particular, though he’ll hang around silicon valley doing nothing until someone gives him a job for the PR opportunity that presents.

His biggest achievement in life seems to be persuading Xiaomi that he held a senior position, when in fact he was low ranking partner relations manager with zero influence over the Android platform. And we recall he wasn’t even any good at that job.
