The idea of Tesla and GM being brought together under Apple'e 6 color beachball has possibilities.


Automotive has historically been 1) very capital intensive, and 2) low-return on the huge capital required. Electric won't help that. Self-driving will greatly worsen the situation (most buying will become fleet buying, by businesses with enormous buying and bargaining power).

This is precisely the opposite of the wonderful business Apple runs. Why in the world would you want to merge your wonderful business with a crappy one?? Sure hope the folks running Apple aren't so stupid.
