SP’s: Elon Musk, in his interview to German newspaper, dissed Apple Inc. for poaching its employees to get its first ever car project in line.
Elon Musk has been reported saying bizarre statements in past few days such as nuking Mars to make it habitable or this latest one in which he says that “Apple is the graveyard for Tesla engineers.”
In an Interview with the German newspaper Handelsblatt, Elon Musk dissed Apple for its ingression in the automobile industry. Musk seemed upset not just because Tesla has another competitor for its electric cars, but also of the fact that Apple has been hiring all of the former Tesla employees.
The technology pioneer took a jab at Apple which was labelled as the world’s most valuable tech brand as he asked,
“Did you ever take a look at the Apple Watch? (laughs) 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.”
While he was in Germany to talk about the future of transportation with the government representatives and to meet German Economics Minister Sigmar Gabriel, he gave the reporter a piece of his mind as to what is wrong with the people of the world.
He has previously asserted his views on the looming global threats because of the blatant exploitation of the fossils and requested the humanity to stop running its dumbest experiment ever.
“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.”
Well, he hits the perfect note on this subject, let’s wait and see what Apple has in stores for Musk.
