Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk isn’t mincing any words when it comes to his thoughts about Apple and his former employees that go on to work for tech giant.  In a recent interview with German newspaper Handelsblatt, Musk remarked – “They have hired people we’ve fired,” Musk said. “We always jokingly call Apple the ‘Tesla Graveyard.’ If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding.” He also didn’t hold back on what his thoughts were about Apple getting into the car business. “Did you ever take a look at the Apple Watch?” Musk said. “No, seriously: It’s good that Apple is moving and investing in this direction. But cars are very complex compared to phones or smartwatches. You can’t just go to a supplier like Foxconn and say: Build me a car.”
