1. Do you actually drive? Driverless cars will (do) exist. That has NOTHING to do with whether or not (in this case, not) they will be allowed on public roads. My point about F1 was that just because something can be created, and just because something can be bought, has nothing to do with whether or not you can drive it on a public road.
2. Factories have been mechanized for decades. Some things, however, robots are not well-suited to. And you do realize that your "maybe in America" statement makes absolutely no sense, right? If they are all robots doing the work, who gives a damn? That doesn't create jobs.
3. The iPhone is technological hardware. You know, with a screen, a processor, memory, storage, etc. The only difference between an iPhone and, say, a MacBook Pro is the iPhone is smaller and it makes phone calls by connecting to cellular network. The iPhone was totally in Apple's wheelhouse, because it is tech hardware -- you know, the business that Apple's involved in?
Cars, otoh, are not in any way part of their business. Ford was incorporated in 1903. Why not leave automobiles to the people who have been making them for over a century?
I mean, should Apple start making refrigerators too? What about golf clubs? Maybe they should design lingerie and compete with VS?
forgot to answer this question
Why not leave automobiles to the people who have been making them for over a century?
I could leave it unanswered as rhetorical but could not help myself answering
Cause in the most part they have been doing a shitty job that why.
Tell that to Elon Musk
