    Apple is horrible yes but what is more horrible is their customers.....a majority of them are loyal to the death for their apple products believing that nothing can beat the apple product....ugh, I have nightmares about those people...Put fact in front of their eyes and they will still deny that anything can be better then Apple :D

  7. I don't think Apple would be successful with a line of cars. The main focus of Apple is to have high profit products and sell its image as a cool-premium brand. In the automotive market they'll be facing many competitors in that market: Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin, just to mention a few. And all of them have a track record of great, powerful and luxurious cars. All of them are already playing with self-driven cars. All these companies already have a huge distribution structure and it is very different than the distribution structure Apple has with its electronics (basically, that car manufacturing needs to be done closer to your intended market).
