Apple app store fees are a de facto global tax on the Internet. Epic is right.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 30, 2021
Tim Cook had an idea in 2016: Apple buys Tesla.— Craig Trudell (@crtrud) July 30, 2021
Elon Musk was interested, but on one condition: “I’m CEO.” Cook thought he meant staying CEO of $TSLA.
No, Musk said, Apple CEO.
“F— you” Cook said, and hung up, according to @timkhiggins's new book. https://t.co/9XL8vFVTNV
Higgins managed to make his book both false *and* boring ??— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 30, 2021
Cook & I have never spoken or written to each other ever.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 30, 2021
There was a point where I requested to meet with Cook to talk about Apple buying Tesla. There were no conditions of acquisition proposed whatsoever.
He refused to meet. Tesla was worth about 6% of today’s value.
Well, @elonmusk not totally wrong ...— John Koetsier, CEO of $SMRT (@johnkoetsier) July 30, 2021
Imagine if every sale on Mac OS X or Windows needed to pay a bit to Apple or Microsoft ...

People may not appreciate how huge the App Store is.— Todd Spangler (@xpangler) July 30, 2021
In 2020, consumers spent $72.3B in the Apple App Store, up 30% year over year, according to estimates by research firm Sensor Tower.
In 2019 (pre-COVID) worldwide movie box office gross was $42.5B https://t.co/QXsIMzRMem
Tim Cook considered buying Tesla in 2016. When he told Elon Musk, Musk had one condition: "I'm CEO." He meant CEO of Apple.— ???? ?????????. (@GregBensinger) July 30, 2021
“F— you” said Cook before hanging up. This juicy detail and more in @timkhiggins's new book, out next week. Can't wait to read.https://t.co/lthDt7wVok
