Last week Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke about Apple in an interview with German publication Handelsblatt, in the interview he said a few things about Apple.
These included that Apple only hires Tesla engineers that he has fired and he also said about the Apple Watch, when he was having a dig at Apple’s plans for the Apple Car.
Now Elon Musk has taken to Twitter to clarify his position on the Apple Watch, and Apple’s plans for an electric car.
Yo, I don’t hate Apple. It’s a great company with a lot of talented people. I love their products and I’m glad they’re doing an EV.

He also went on to say what a great job Apple had done with the apple watch.
Regarding the watch, Jony & his team created a beautiful design, but the functionality isn’t compelling yet. By version 3, it will be. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 9, 2015
The things that Elon Musk said in the original interview could easily be taken out of context and it is possible he was joking when he made the original comments.
