Trump makes false claims about Apple opening a factory

I know, Trump lied, huge shocker. Kara Swisher explained why this statement is a steaming pile of dung, and that Apple not correcting the president is weak sauce.

This is completely false. I get that @tim_cook did not correct the Tim Apple thing (pointing out someone being addled is awkward), but this is different. It’s a plant run by a company called Flex that has been manifacturing since 2013. If Apple is not going to say so, I will. Btw and laudably and in no way like the circus Amazon conducted, Apple is opening a large campus in Texas and that’s great. I also get the need to meet with this administration and also Trump by big tech CEOs (who cares if Mark Zuckerberg has dinner with Trump and Thiel). But being part of what will doubtlessly be a fake campaign ad is just unfortunate and disappointing for Apple.

I wonder what Shackers in our daily Trump Dump Shacknews Chatty mega thread think of Tim Apple's photo op with the president yesterday. (Turn on political filters to see that thread)

Tesla Cybertruck to be revealed tonight!

Elon Musk will take the stage at the Tesla Design Center in Los Angeles, California tonight to reveal the company's new pickup truck. Tesla Cybertruck has been teased for nearly six years, so it is about time for customers to kick the tires.
