Apple snatching up Teslas employees

Apple has hired away numerous Tesla employees since the end of last year — and not just to work on its Apple Car efforts, either.

According to LinkedIn data, 46 former Tesla employees have joined Apple since late 2017: either leaving the company directly for Apple, or being dismissed and then joining. These include manufacturing experts, security and software engineers, supply chain authorities, and more. And Tesla has an official statement to make about it.

In a statement to CNBC, Tesla didn’t deny the exodus of employees to Apple, and highlighted the financial gulf between the two companies:

“We wish them well. Tesla is the hard path. We have 100 times less money than Apple, so of course they can afford to pay more. We are in extremely difficult battles against entrenched auto companies that make 100 times more cars than we did last year, so of course this is very hard work. We don’t even have money for advertising or endorsements or discounts, so must survive on the quality of our products alone. Nonetheless, we believe in our mission and that it is worth the sacrifice of time and the never ending barrage of negativity by those who wish us ill. So it goes. The world must move to sustainable energy and it must do so now.”

You will need a unique garage to park it in also.

ARGH! I've been kind of exited about a possible Apple car. Forgot about Jony.

I wish Apple would forget building cars and just make a deal with Tesla to put Apple stuff in the Tesla cars.

When I was at Apple Tesla was offering Apple employees their salary+50% to come over. They were falling over themselves to get whatever they could, even if they didn't have a position for them. Most were miserable and came back.

Don't need to forget about cars to do that. I'd love to have a "Pro" mini. Yeah, good luck.

I think one of the reasons Apple (and Google) is looking into cars is because of who is going to dominate in the car OS (operating system) space. This is another potential money making area for Tesla as well.

To see what this means, you have to notice cars are going to electronic displays (like LCDs) for all interaction between car and driver. The potential for this application is big as the global market for automobiles. Whoever dominates in this space can be the next Microsoft, Google or Apple.

No doubt that self driving vehicles are the near future. They will feature increased safety and economy, as well as other benefits, and my grandkids will probably never need to get a driver's license. Fundamental changes that some will profit handsomely from.

Until that one digital interface craps out, and you have a $4000 repair bill.

the business model of self driving cars is probably not what most of you think. That is all I can say in a public forum.
