Now I don't think Apple needs a car at all. But Rivian has a built in base now of pick up owners, they have the contract with Amazon for their electric delivery vans which is a nice, built sales flow. Rivian is also announcing a new vehicle this weekend.
But beyond a car, Apple is right to make a huge push into AI (how about building a processor to challenge the Nvidia H100?) and they should also be looking into quantum computing.

News from a store...
If you want to see a pile of people with sore throats and who are very tired, but also very proud... go to an Apple Store and find everyone in a blue shirt that spent the weekend doing AVP demos or just answering questions about it to a constant flow of customers.
No, stores were not busy like an iPhone launch, this was different. But there was a ton of traffic, just more measured and not as frantic. Like those of us in those blue shirts, the customers- those buying, those taking the demo, and those just curious to see this new thing- were amazing and smiling throughout it all.
This is more than just a new product, it's a new everything.
