APPLE TO TAKE OVER TESLA?
Elon Musk recently announced he is considering to withdraw Tesla shares from the stock market and attract new investors, claiming the funding for the move is already secured.
But, according to Business Insider, Apple has in the meantime announced they are launching a new car project and this could be an interesting combination.
Apple plans to roll out its Titan car in the market by 2023. Although it has resources, it is hard to expect that they can achieve such fast results as they start from the scratch. They are more likely to acquire someone to speed up the process.
Tesla might be a “cheap” investment in comparison to what they would have to invest into developing a totally new project.
With such acquisition, Apple would not just get a car, but a network of charging stations, a battery factory in Nevada, and solar power sources as a bonus. It would position Apple as one of the major players in the energy industry.

EU THREATENS FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE AND TWITTER WITH FINES OVER ONLINE TERROR PROPAGANDA
Europe is launching a fresh crackdown on online terror propaganda by threatening some of the largest internet companies such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter with the imposition of fresh fines should they fail to act.
The European Commission detailed its toughened stance after determining that a voluntary approach of self-regulation was not achieving the desired results and will instead demand removal of terror-related content such as videos, text and audio by way of new regulations.
A draft version of the new regulations won’t be published until next month but it is believed to include a one-hour time limit for the removal of content flagged as terror material by law enforcement agencies.
