    a) What is he supposed to say? “We cower in fear of the almighty bitten one?”
    b) It really doesn’t matter whether anyone welcomes Apple anywhere. It’s not like anyone’s ever needed an invitation before.

    I still think Apple should make core automotive and lifestyle technologies for use in cars, and sell them to as many car-makers as they can — an evolution of CarPlay if you like, but possibly involving the drivetrain in a similar way to watch Bosch currently does.

    But if they want to make an Apple-branded car, I challenge anyone to *not* welcome them.
