Apple Senior VP: Steve Jobs Considered Building An ICar
If you think removing the battery from your iPhone is hard, wait until you try removing one from an iCar
Apple has made some pretty revolutionary new products over the last decade. It absolutely owned the MP3 player market with the release of the iPod. Then, it dominated of the phone market with its incredibly popular iPhone. Soon after, Apple won the tablet wars with its iPad. But had history turned out just a little bit differently, we could be ferrying all those gadgets back and forth in our very own iCars.
As part of his testimony in the ongoing Apple vs. Samsung court case, Apple Senior VP of Marketing Phil Schiller dropped a bombshell: The computing giant was once considering building a connected car. Schiller dismissed the idea as "crazy stuff," but the news is unsurprising. After all, Silicon Valley rival Google has been working on its own car for years now. Schiller also said Apple was considering making its own branded camera.
Of course, we have no idea what an iCar would look like, but we're pretty sure we can guess as to some of its possible features. After all, who wouldn't want a vehicle with digital personal assistant Siri built in to help change radio stations or find directions without taking your hands off the wheel?
