Elon Musk said Apple is Tesla’s graveyard. The statement come out when Elon Musk commented those who jumped from Tesla to Apple’s Project Titan is not important staff to Tesla.
Important engineers? They have hired people we’ve fired. We always jokingly call Apple the ‘Tesla Graveyard.’ If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding.
Elon Musk at the same time praise Apple as the company also working for their own EV. But Elon Musk also added develop a car is not as same as building an electronic gadget.
No, seriously: it’s good that Apple is moving and investing in this direction. But cars are very complex compared to phones or smartwatches. You can’t just go to a supplier like Foxconn and say: ‘Build me a car.’ But for Apple, the car is the next logical thing to finally offer a significant innovation. A new pencil or a bigger iPad alone were not relevant enough
Elon Musk in his latest tweet said his statement does not mean he hates Apple (it is hard to believe if he ever had a phone other than iPhone)
Yo, I don't hate Apple. It's a great company with a lot of talented people. I love their products and I'm glad they're doing an EV.
