"Adrian Perica is a very busy man. Over the past 18 months, the mergers and acquisitions chief at Apple has been scouring the globe looking for deals, snatching up everything from search engines and data analytics to mapping software and motion tracking chips.
A source tells The Chronicle that Perica met with Tesla CEO Elon Musk in Cupertino last spring at around the same time analysts suggested Apple acquire the electric car giant.
The newspaper has also learned that Apple is heavily exploring medical devices, specifically sensor technology that can help predict heart attacks. Led by Tomlinson Holman, a renowned audio engineer who invented THX and 10.2 surround sound, Apple is exploring ways to predict heart attacks by studying the sound blood makes at it flows through arteries.
Taken together, Apple's potential forays into automobiles and medical devices, two industries worlds away from consumer electronics, underscore the company's deep desire to move away from iPhones and iPads and take big risks.
Good grief. Is the 'iTesla next in the 'i' line?"
Imagine how much the apple branded car charging cable will cost? Maybe they'll make it only work with apple branded electricity.
Also, no stress relief for the cable, it'll wear out as fast as my laptop charger did.
Wait, did I just admit I have a macbook? It runs Arch, I swear to god.
Yeah and when something goes wrong Apple would reply "you weren't holding in right. Here have these free fur dice to hang on your mirror"
Haven't you heard the rumours that Apple is negotiating a deal with Quantum Mechanics to have electrons with an Apple-signature charge? The next generation of Apple products will only run on iElectricity with iElectrons. There is a good chance that iPhotons will follow in the deal and require new iEyes.
