Is Apple hiring everyone they can from Tesla to build the Apple car? Are they succeeding at it?Why do Apple need to? They find the products - successful or failed and redefine them into success!
I remember when everyone laughed and said Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard was a failure and won't work - a few years later, Apple made wireless automatically part of the iMac and everyone said it was brilliant!
So Apple will take a few people from established companies, put all together to look at and work on failing/failed products/companies and a few years everyone else has done it, they will launch the same but as a success!
Remind you of:-
Google Wallet = Apple Pay
Microsoft Smartwatch = Apple Watch
Tesla = iCar????
Did Apple hire everyone they could from Microsoft and IBM to create the Mac? No? They looked at the Xerox Alto and improved it using components that any company could have got off the shelf to make a world beating product that people actually wanted.
They did, in fact, hire people from Xerox PARC just as Apple are hiring from Tesla, but most of the workers who added value were not from Xerox. Let's hope that Apple create a product as much better than the already excellent Tesla as the Mac was better than the innovative but Alto.
