Elon Musk , CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, recently commented on Tim Higgins’ upcoming book about him and Apple’s Tim Cook, declaring it “fake and boring”.
In fact, here is Musk’s tweet in response to Mark Gurman:
Higgins managed to make his book both false *and* boring 🤣🤣— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 30, 2021
So tim_cook said he never talked to elonmusk. Musk said Cook declined the meeting, but the book says they talked and had this interaction. “
“Higgins managed to make his book both fake and boring.”
In essence, the journalist and writer Tim Higgins seems to have wanted to describe an interesting proposal that the two multimillion-dollar technology giants would have made but there would be nothing true according to Musk.
The book: “Power Play: Tesla, Elon Musk, and the Bet of the Century” , will be released tomorrow August 3 and wants to reveal a successful event in 2016.
The review of the book, published by the Los Angeles Times, describes how Musk in 2016, having financial problems close to the latest Model 3, would have received the proposed purchase of Tesla from Cook of Apple . Not only that, the book also talks about the fact that Musk would have accepted if only he had become the CEO.
All this would have happened during a telephone conversation between the two, which however seems to have never happened.
Elon Musk and Apple: what’s the truth?
Within days of its public debut, the Wall Street Journal reporter’s book appears to have stirred Musk’s temper on his favorite social media.
Indeed, once again, Musk responded to the (possibly even provocative) tweet from author Higgins.
Musk was given plenty of opportunities to comment on this. He didn’t. This anecdote comes from Musk’s own account of the conversation, according to people who heard the retelling at the time. https://t.co/GRKZRBsaeR— Tim Higgins (@timkhiggins) July 30, 2021
A Musk sono state date molte opportunità per commentare questo. Non l’ha fatto. Questo aneddoto proviene dal resoconto di Musk stesso della conversazione, secondo le persone che hanno sentito il racconto all’epoca.”
“Io e Cook non ci siamo mai parlati o scritti. C’è stato un momento in cui ho chiesto di incontrare Cook per parlare di Apple che compra Tesla. Non c’erano condizioni di acquisizione proposte. Si è rifiutato di incontrarmi. Tesla valeva circa il 6% del valore odierno,” ha risposto Musk.
Nel frattempo, le ultime interazioni di Elon sono invece collegate ad un altro celebre colosso della tecnologia, anche se il settore è il social media.
Infatti, a fine luglio a fare discutere ci ha pensato Jack Dorsey, il CEO di Twitter.
In un video-confronto insieme anche alla rockstar degli investimenti azionari Cathie Wood, Musk ha infatti finalmente dichiarato davanti al mondo intero il suo supporto verso Bitcoin.
