Tesla’s semi-autonomous Autopilot system has been impressing everyone from consumers to journalists, and even other industry experts and executives. Even us! But now a Volvo engineer has called Tesla’s system out, claiming it’s a dangerous “wannabe” autonomous technology.
No one knows what the Apple Car will really look like (even if some jokers out there pretend they do on Twitter) but one thing is for sure: Apple has been on a tremendous hiring binge from car world, out of Tesla Motors in particular.

Tesla Motors announced to owners and reporters today that it will issue a voluntary recall for all Model X SUVs built in late March and earlier over a possible safety issue with the optional third-row seats.
