And how do you know how long Apple spent on its due diligence? Apple has probably been looking at this company or UBER for a year of more. If you have not noticed, Apple has been very cautious in its investments.
I think the value of DIDI went up by 25%-50% with the Apple investment. In a year or two Apple will have doubled the worth of its $1 billion investment.
IPhones gone? Every car I pass has someone talking or texting. Let me know where I can move to and not run not into folks on the iPhone.
Cook would never have hire Trump.
When you hire someone and then have to fire them, that means you made a mistake.
I for one really like Cook visiting these countries. To deal with the Asians you have to build relationships. That can only be done face to face and is a constant struggle.
I hope Cook sets his calander and makes these important trips once a quarter. There is nothing more important for Apple than this.
Exactly correct. The only way Apple should buy Tesla is if it is offered for 10 cents on the dollar. Apple can install their technology in GM and have a real car company. Read about DeLorean or Cord if you want to project Tesla's future.
I cannot imagine what Cook/Apple are thinking to publicize his trip to China before going. Now everyone will want to know the outcome and details, something the Chinese may not wish to share. If something good comes out of the meeting, then have a great press release. What if nothing is accomplished? Cook/Apple will look like idiots.
I am beginning to believe Cook is an inexperienced rookie. These mistakes are costing us.
There is a reason Apple has money and all Tesla has is a vision. The next time you want to buy something use vision and see how that works out.
