From The Macalope’s “The Apple Car is already as legendary as the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV” posted Tuesday on Macworld:
Before he switched to a largely alfalfa-based diet, the Macalope ate nothing but Apple rumors.
True story. You can imagine his indigestion…
Rumors of Apple building a car took off around 2014, with people predicting one would arrive by 2020, a goal no serious Apple watcher put stock in. And, the Macalope doesn’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but it’s 2021 and the Apple car has not arrived yet. Spoiler alert…
What makes the car such a great rumor? First, we have the travails of the Titan group within Apple. A secret project once led by Bob Mansfield should be enough right there. There have been reorganizations, layoffs, executive movements, changes in scope, and deadlines. These are rumors you can really chew on.
Less like a steak and more like bubble gum, chewing forever and getting no nutritional value whatsoever.
My take: Love the ‘lope. Thanks friend-of-blog David Emery for surfacing this in the Slack.
