The question that very many people desire to have answered is whether Apple is going to buy Tesla.

The same question is what the Apple shareholders had for Tim Cook at their annual meeting this week.

It is reported that CEO Tim Cook was peppered with questions about a possible partnership with Tesla Motors, and One shareholder flat out told Cook that he wants Apple to buy Telsa.

However, Cook sidestepped the comment, saying that his company doesn’t “really have a relationship” with the car maker, he then quickly changed the subject to Apple’s in-car infotainment system.

“I’d love Tesla to pick up CarPlay,” Cook said. “We now have every major auto brand committing to use CarPlay.” After a pause, he added, “was that a good way to avoid the question? Hey, there are some perks to being CEO.”

Tesla chief Elon Musk last year revealed that they had conversations with Apple, but said he could not comment on “whether those revolved around any kind of acquisition.”

    The shareholders are right: Apple should buy Tesla — and do it soon.
    Why reinvent the wheel?
