Do you understand what 'programmed' in assembly means? Does not mean there is an assembler or interpreter on the device, only that the source code was written in assembler for some processor architecture, assembled to a binary image, and then programmed into ROM/FLASH/etc on the target device.

'Programmed in C' does not mean your fancy toothbrush has to have GCC running on it to be able to do its thing any more than 'programmed in assembler' does.

They can fill a moneypit OFFSHORE from the United States. A majority of Apple's $200B cash hoard is overseas. They have massive DEBT of $40B+ in the US.
So if Apple is going to build an iCar it will be in China most likely.

I consider Apple's entry into the automobile design realm as some executive(s) wet dream. The biggest problem is they don't know what they don't know.

Anybody remember when able bought the Cray supercomputer back in the 80s so they could use it to prototype next-generation CPU designs?

Can you say boondoggle? I new you could.

If I'm going to support a candidate for the job of POTUS I expect them to get elected and then do the f***ing job for at least four years.
If he says he will be a one term president up front I then applaud him for that. But getting elected so he can resign makes no sense.
Go back to academia where you can play what if. We need a real POTUS committed to the job of running the country.
