Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne thinks that Apple should leave car building to the car industry. They're complex devices, after all. Plus, he has just the company for the job. Because he's an "Apple Freak" who owns one of everything Apple makes, Mr. Marchionne thinks Fiat Chrysler would be a great manufacturing partner for Apple.
The directors of the CIA and NSA blamed the press for educating terrorists on the important of encryption. Bryan Chaffin thinks this is both dangerous and foolish commentary, and it shows our top intelligence people are learning the wrong lessons from reality.
FBI Director James Comey penned his own open letter to counter public comments from Apple and CEO Tim Cook arguing against those efforts. So far the mainstream media hads dealt with the letter in a very uncritical fasion. Bryan Chaffin thought that should change.
Apple has built what was a secret team to develop virtual reality technology, according to unnamed sources cited by The Financial Times of London. The team is comprised of hundreds of employees from a series of acquisitions in the virtual reality (VR) and augmented-reality (AR) space, as well as hires from outside of Apple. Bryan Chaffin wants to know what they're working on.

Apple is doing really well. The company is fantabulously successful, or so Bryan Clark argued at TheNextWeb. But all that success is only masking the reality that Apple is in a heap of trouble with no future. That's what Bryan Clark is saying, and for his efforts he has earned himself a place in the Apple Death Knell Counter.
Did you hear the one about night being day, up being down, black being white, and Amazon opening up a brick and mortar book store? It turns out one of those things is true—earlier this week, Amazon opened up its first brick and mortar book store in the tony confines of Seattle’s University Village. Bryan Chaffin looks at what this might mean.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk told the world Friday that Apple has been hiring people fired from Tesla, that Apple is jokingly known as the Tesla Graveyard. That's not the story I've been hearing for some time from my sources. My understanding is that many people have been leaving Tesla to go to a variety of other companies, and not just to Apple.
