Ray Liotta and Paul Walter Hauser have each been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie for their performances in "Black Bird."

    See??? THIS is what Apple should continue doing, instead of trying to start a car company! Is Disney starting a car company? Is Netflix? Is Microsoft?

    Microsoft will create a car when Apple makes a fortune on them. Microsoft's car will be a woody panelled minivan with a coupe like form to eliminate "wasted and useful" space. Although technically a 5-wheeled vehicle, it is only driven by a centrally located "big wheel" to increase efficiency.  Every level from base model to Supreme Deluxe with Cheese will have wheel spoke card "clackers". The driving software version 1.0 will remind you every 5 seconds to attach your seatbelts even on models where they were an optional purchase. Clippy will make his big screen return on the giant 8" retro LED screen centrally placed on the dash to create maximum reflections. Clippy responds to verbal questions like "do nachos really need cheese?" or "where's the darn brake pedal ?". At launch Microsoft will create the tongue-in-cheek adverts again comparing their amazing and one-of-a-kind(1) technology by bringing back to life Ricardo Montalbán using 3D projection tech in which he will promote the fine textured vegan pleather dash and recycled cardboard bench seating we all miss today. Unfortunately we were forced to give any chance of children's car seating but will include 2 free rolls of double-sided carpet tape to affix those kids in place. 

    (1) One-of-a-kind refers to the volume of vehicles Microsoft will actually sell.

    "Microsoft will create a car when Apple makes a fortune on them." Which will be never. Car manufacturing is a money pit, into which literally HUNDREDS of American entrepreneurs have fallen. Some repeatedly. I fear the same fate for an Apple venture. Especially when the goal is to mass produce EVs that sell for over $100,000 (if sales tax and "Delivery charge," "Doc Fee," "Dealer Prep" are factored in. And that's in base trim without any options.

    There just aren't enough Americans out there buying $120K autos. And for the ones that are, there are plenty of well-established other brands to compete.
