SevenNineAlpha, 10 Oct 2015Ever heard of Oil Companies? They laughed at Apple's income.Yeah? show me one who makes more?
First off, I'm an avid Android user and developer.
Even before this statements Elon was my hero, because he contributed to the world in leaps and bounds in comparison to Steve Jobs (nice gimmicks maker).
Elon pushes science much much further than Steve ever did. Sorry, but that's a FACT!
But I don't think that such a reputable person should ever lower himself to this level (he did correct himself on twitter though).
If a engineer was fired from Tesla Motors and still loves to build cars, I see no reason to jump ship to Apple, if they're hiring.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2015First of all, I would love to see where you got that 90% figure from.
Secondly, the convers... moreNo sense of trying to argue with him man. Lol. Actually don't ever argue with someone who use J.Bieber to prove their point.
Btw, I think he meant 90% of smartphone profit in a quarter. (,--)
haha, I like this guy. I am an Apple fan but I think it's funny.
He is thinking that promoting himself is as good as promoting his company's products! Not all can become Steve Jobs....Elon is doing many exciting things through Tesla but he cannot afford to promote himself through such jabs
Haters gonna hate
All fANDROIDS hate iPHONE because they know that their ANDROID devices can't beat iPHONE
pity u all fANDROIDS

Secondly, the conversation I was responding to had one person claiming there is no rising interest in Apple. I was merely pointing out the fact that they sell a record number of devices each year, which you can clearly see from their quarterly releases. When you are selling more and more of something each year that generally means there is rising interest. Can you point me to the part of my comment that referenced profit?
As a consumer the more phones Apple sells, the more developer and third party support I get. Can you join the dots now?

AnonD-442781, 11 Oct 2015I don't see how your personal attacks are remotely relevant to what I said, so it obviously do... moreHolistically it's perfectly relevant to everything you say. On every post. Everywhere.
It was a knee-jerk reaction to Apple entering the car industry. Normal, everyone is territorial.
He even sort of retracted his comments:
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2015That guy is a troll who hates Apple but, like most Android fanboys, are obsessed with Apple. ... moreAre you really that dumb? Apple is the company with the highest profit in the world, which is about 90%, which is HUGE. When you are praising apple for its record sales, do you even have any idea what that says about you? Are you really that bling ? Their sales dont help you at all, it only helps them. When a company is popular and has a lot of sales, it means it''s high rated, but that doesnt mean at all that by default that the company in cause is good, just like Justin Bieber.... he is extremely famous and liked, but he is a disrespectful faggot . Ue your brain mon.... never go full retard

Next year Apple will introduce its first round-face smartwatch. Not sure if they have the technology. Smartwatch are already moving forward by the time Apple enters round-face design. We are moving to the Wove Band type of design. A flexible display will begin to trend in 2016.
Have to admit - he's quite right - that Apple watch is incredibly ugly and looks like it was designed in the 90's by an inexperienced designer.
Johnny Ive - nil points!
AnonD-442781, 11 Oct 2015Do I even need to point out the irony of that last sentence to someone who thinks chargers are... moreGood lord you're dense. Chargers are one of the few things standardized in the EV segment right now. The fact that Tesla does not want to standardize that and open up their charging network to other companies gives you an idea about their mindset. They are closer to Apple than Google. Thus nullifying your fellow fanboy's statements.
EV is a segment of the auto industry. It is not a platform like an OS. The people on this site need to stop talking about cars. They need to stick to simple spec sheets.

Nevermind the fact iphones use a unique port lol.
