» How’d that work out?

GigaOm reports that Motorola will shutter is Texas factory:

The Fort Worth plant, operated in conjunction with Flextronics, primarily assembled the Moto X, Motorola’s high-end smartphone, which can be customized with a variety of bezel colors and case backings. In addition to allowing Motorola to tout its phones as “Made in USA,” the U.S. factory was intended to help Motorola ship out customized devices quickly. But disappointing Moto X sales and higher costs compared to overseas plants made the Fort Worth factory unnecessary.

I’m so old I remember when the Moto X was the latest iPhone killer. And by that I mean I’m more than 10 months old.
