Musk wanted to be Apple's CEO in a buy out

    "Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook and Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk are talking on the phone. The 2016 unveiling of the make-it-or-break-it Model 3 is coming soon, but Tesla is in serious financial trouble. Cook has an idea: Apple buys Tesla.

    Musk is interested, but one condition: "I’m CEO."

    Sure, says Cook. When Apple bought Beats in 2014, it kept on the founders, Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre.

    No, Musk says. Apple. Apple CEO.

    “F— you” Cook says, and hangs up.

    So goes the juiciest allegation in “Power Play: Tesla, Elon Musk and the Bet of the Century" by Wall Street Journal reporter Tim Higgins."

    I see him more as a anti influencer. He has the opposite influence on me from what you should expect.

    A Musk bullshit refresh:

    "But holy shit, after he unironically proposed hyperloop, I just knew there is something wrong with that guy. Like, he is either a complete fucking idiot or he is riding his clout as Wish-order Tony Stark and is proposing this unrealistic bullshit to get free advertisement in "tech" media."
