From the San Francisco Chronicle, a couple of rumours we can sink our teeth into:
But Apple is thinking bigger. Much bigger. A source tells The Chronicle that (Apple) met with Tesla CEO Elon Musk in Cupertino last spring around the same time analysts suggested Apple acquire the electric car giant.
And from the same article:
The newspaper has also learned that Apple is heavily exploring medical devices, specifically sensor technology that can help predict heart attacks. Led by Tomlinson Holman, a renowned audio engineer who invented THX and 10.2 surround sound, Apple is exploring ways to predict heart attacks by studying the sound blood makes at it flows through arteries.
Apple has about $160 billion sitting in the bank, plus the company is highly profitable. This would be the perfect time to take a chance on branching out into something entirely new.
In any case, it sure beats reading about those ridiculous iWatch rumours.
