Elon Musk vs Apple: History of resentment

Run the year 2016. Tesla goes through serious financial problems, just before the launch of Model 3, and Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, an output occurs: that Apple comprises Tesla. According to the new book of the Journalist of The Wall Street Journal, Tim Higgins, Musk likes the idea but in that telephone conversation he imposes on him the only condition of him: Let him be the CEO.

Cook reacts immediately and assures that there is no problem, who faced a similar scenario after the purchase of Beats - the musical streaming service - in 2014 and that its founders, Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, followed commanding his Company after closing the agreement. But Musk clarifies him that the position he wants is the Absolute Chief of Apple. Cook sends the fuck and hangs up.

Hours after the article of the Los Angeles Times that collects the Abstract of the Book Musk undertaken by Twitter against the giant of the apple bitten by the high commissions that the Cupertino company to the Creators of Apps charges. He clearly positions himself on the side of Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, in his lawsuit to Apple for that system of commissions so harmful to his interests and the tilda of a "de facto global tax on the Internet".

In addition, he takes the opportunity to clarify that Cook's conversation never existed and that Higgins's book is full of falsehoods and "is bored". He did not speak with Steve Jobs substitute at Apple's head or asked him to be a head of anything, something that Cook himself confirms, expressing his "admiration and respect for the company he has built."

The truth is that the attempt by Musk did existed. The South African explained in December last year that he tried to propose to Cook an acquisition of Tesla during the "darkest days" of model 3 production, the low cost he was called to save the company and that the dessert became In your catalyst. But Cook refused to meet to talk about a possible sale. "There was a point where I requested to meet with Cook to talk about Apple buying Tesla," he wrote on Twitter. "There were no conditions of acquisition of any".

Perhaps the resentment outbreak that is guessing in the poisoned darts that has launched Tesla leader to Cook and his own in recent days. He has not only been intruded into the matter of the commissions of the iPhone and Android applications, which he tiled from "Duopoly". He also charged against the news service, Apple News, who decided to cancel for his alleged negative energy load, which caused a cascade of cancellations to the news service, at least according to the comments of his many followers in the networks.

Those marriage conditions that Musk proposed could have been immensely advantageous for Apple. At the time of talks, as the same Musk has been in charge of pointing, Tesla was worth 6% of what is worth now, 666,000 million dollars, a booty close to 640,000 million dollars for Apple having bet on the current Dominator of electrical worldwide.

I would have shortened the path of the technological giant towards battery cars. Although there is nothing official, rumors around that possibility have been large for years and it seems a matter of time to take a step in one direction or another, either with its own vehicle factory or by associating with an existing brand.

The Ojeriza of Musk is not new. In 2015 he granted an interview with a German newspaper on him was mocked from the fact that many of Tesla dismissed ended in Apple, converted into the "cemetery" of him. at bedroom.
