Apple is threatening to remove Twitter from the iPhone store.

Musk has commented that if they do, he will go into the phone business.

High end phones sell for over $1000, and cost less than $100 to make. The technology is well understood, so there are no technical barriers to Musk entering the market.

How might that play out?

Tesla brand is strong. I think a phone would be an absolute winner.

Plenty of people fed up with Apple and Android spying. If Musk enters the market his phone will be a winner - eventually.

I hope Musk goes into the phone business.

My iphone 13 mini (purchased this year) is a piece of crap. I have to reboot up to 3 times a day (sometimes I do get lucky and do not have to shut down and restart), at times (daily) letters and numbers have to be hit multiple times for it to eventually work, half the time my password has to be inputted multiple times for it to accept it, many times it does not ring or vibrate on calls, texts, and emails received, and, for some reason, settings get changed without me doing so.

I am pretty sure it will get obliterated by a wall in 2023 and it will not be missed.

I’d love to see him do it.

I have no idea what it entails but between his money, brand recognition and all of the phones being sourced out to Asia already. It would seem doable for Musk to outsource a phone contract to China or South Korea and go into the phone business.

App support will be key. Wonder if he would develop his own OS or go with something like linux for mobile devices.

Remember why, specifically, the Bill of Rights was written...remember its purpose. It was written to limit the power of government over the individual.

There is no believing a liar, even when he speaks the truth.

Apple will cave. Guaranteed. Apple is wise enough to know Musk's premise for free speech is the right thing. Apple just has to flex some muscles, let the world know it still has liberal roots and cares about wokeness.

I think that’s spot on.

Musk in turn is probably just flexing some muscle back to let Apple know that actually following through with the threat wouldn’t be good for them either.

Luv the guy 🤔 nah, but he does have an above average success rate in his business ventures and will go down in history as one of our pivotal innovators of the 21st century.

But I will also say that I be damned before I let anyone put a computer chip in my head! Just saying!

Q told me today the end goal by the Patriots is to roll out an independent operating system for phones and tablets.

Hey, I didn’t believe in Q until today. This bitch layed on the lunch table my duty S&W Model 39 from my first tour with the exact s/n, and my current house key.

I have to believe in Q now. I told her I take it as a threat and one wrong move and they would pay dearly.

Lots of room to compete in devices but the Apple ecosystem is something that can't be simply rebuilt and replicated. Its pretty easy for him to buy something existing and try to make it popular and that would make more sense that to build a new brand if you ask me.

I’m watching Musk closely and I like what I’m seeing. In this current clown world I believe it’s important….imperative that we actively support those “big shots”, the intellectual movers and shakers that, like Musk, have conservative beliefs and are actively working to disrupt the progressive agenda. A man like Elon gives us conservatives a huge boost of legitimacy with the younger and vacuous millennials. Most people only know what CNN tells them but those idiots do follow Twitter and their entire lives are dictated to them through social media. Musk has a huge following of people that have no clue about politics and they’ll simply follow him and vote as he tells them to vote

I ain’t going to be running out to buy a Tesla right now but we are looking at switching our internet to Starlink because I like the idea of having Starlink access on my bigger boat and I like Elon. If Elon comes out with a phone I’ll gladly dump my iPhone and get a Musk phone.
