Let's see...considering everything Apple has made in the past, especially the iPod and iPhone, if Apple made an iCar it would be as thus:
1.) 3 times more expensive than any other car.
2.) Only comes in unremarkable white.
3.) It's statistics such as Horsepower, MPG, Performance, and Crash-Test Ratings would never be released and would be regarded as
4.) No parts in the car would be replaceable or serviceable. If something breaks, the whole car would have to be replaced by repurchasing a new
5.) Will exploit a third-world nation for raw materials causing political upheaval, civil war, and acts of genocide.
6.) Can only be recharged at the iStore, requiring a valid Credit Card and the installation of invasive malware. Services purchased at the iStore for
your iCar would be non-transferable to any other car or anther iCar.
7.) It would not operate with non-iCar devices, even other devices made by Apple.
8.) Apple would make the claim that it is immune to accidents, creating a false security to it's owners, who will get careless and find that iCars
still can get in accidents (just like the fallacy that the iMac, MacOS, iPod and iPhone are somehow miraculously immune to Viruses).
9.) Anyone who would criticize the iCar with any rational argument will be immediately flamed into non-existence by irrationally devout fan-bois and
10.) And despite all these things, it would be embraced by smug, trendy yuppies everywhere and considered a status symbol for the "green" elite.
So, basically an iCar would be an all around bad idea considering Apple's previous track record. However, I do not doubt that if they did so it would
be immensely popular and successful.
