Steve Kondik Separates from Cyanogen
Steve Kondik expressed his sentiments about the issues on Cyanogen Company in the CyanogenMod developer Google Plus community where he revealed the reasons on his separation and who the culprit is. According to Gadgets NDTV, Kondik is referring to his co-founder Kirt McMaster as the reason why he decided to cut his ties with the company he co-founded and worked for eight years.
In his statement, Kondik said that McMaster was no longer focusing on their vision for the company and becomes greedy that resulted to bad business deals and misguided media activities. He admits that he tried to stop the damaged caused by McMaster but later on he found out that everyone in their office has sided on McMaster.
Furthermore, Kondik has tried working on another project that he sees as the fulfillment of the company's vision but McMaster's camp has destroyed his plan using the company's hard-earned money from the bank. For this reason, Kondik decided to go on separate ways because that's what he thinks is best for him and the company.
On the other hand, Kirt McMaster is reportedly causing headaches to the company through his moronic comments. McMaster is also to be blame for all the confusing business models and media snafus.
