which was posted earlier at https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20280920. Thanks!


In 1984 Apple figured they could build a better general computer than anyone else, so they launched the Apple MacIntosh

In 2001 they figured they could build a better music player than anyone else, so they launched the iPod

In 2007 they figured they could build a better smartphone than anyone else, so they launched the iPhone

Does Apple really think they can build a better car or self-driving computer than anyone else?


If I'm not mistaken, the only times they managed to one-up everyone was when Jobs was at the helm. Going to be a tougher time launching something truely revolutionary without that vision and persona at the wheel.
