    No one would connect on-line auction payments with a car, either. 🙂

    It astonishes me that anyone from the “git-go” would give credence to an alleged conversation between Tim Cook & Elon Musk as denoted in the book, “Power Play.” That ploy to gain the book public attention only revoked such effort among people who know Apple and who have studied Tim Cook. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure such a telephone call never happened, unless Elon Musk had been smoking heavy quantities of Grease Monkey, Chocolate, Blue Walker & Banana Kush all week. It comes as little surprise the author is a reporter with the NYT. Par for the course!

      Precisely Jerry.

      This says more about the lack of character of the Power Play author and about Leo LaPorte’s audience who would waste time listening to his commentary.

    @Hap Allen –
    Hmmm, sounds similar to something we’ve heard in the past…oh yeah…”Apple is a computer company, what makes them think they can make a mobile phone and compete with all us phone makers who know everything there is to know about mobile phones”, or some variation of that, doubtless accompanied by much swearing and laughter. Of course, while they didn’t know it at the time, the whole world changed on 1/9/07 and has never been the same since. I’m not sure we can accurately envision all that Apple could bring to the automobile field. Especially not the auto folks. THX1138 anyone?
