Today's email begins with a look at the incredibly interesting Charlie Rose interview with Jony Ive. While the interview took place this past September, Rose just published the full talk a few days ago. Jony discusses a range of topics from money and business to how he describes his role at Apple and what he would be doing if he wasn't working at Apple. We look at a few of his most important answers and then go a bit deeper in terms of interpretation and perspective. Next, we go over news that General Motors will acquire Cruise Automation. We look at why Cruise sold to GM and why GM bought Cruise. Welcome to the next era of the auto industry as legacy automakers prepare to battle the tech giants.
