Il WSJ riporta — stando ad alcune sue fonti — che Apple abbia diverse persone sotto “Project Titan”, dietro cui ci sarebbe una macchina (self-driving o no, non si capisce bene al momento):
“There are products that we’re working on that no one knows about,” Chief ExecutiveTim Cook told interviewer Charlie Rose in September. “That haven’t been rumored about yet.” […]
Mr. Cook approved the car project almost a year ago and assigned veteran product design Vice President Steve Zadesky to lead the group, the people familiar with the matter said. Mr. Zadesky is a former Ford engineer who helped lead the Apple teams that created the iPod and iPhone.
Mr. Zadesky was given permission to create a 1,000-person team and poach employees from different parts of the company, one of the people familiar with the matter said. Working from a private location a few miles from Apple’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, the team is researching different types of robotics, metals and materials consistent with automobile manufacturing, the people said.
Boh. Solamente R&D? (gli investimenti sotto Tim Cook in Research & Development sono saliti del 36% solo nell’ultimo anno)
