Apple Explores Charging Stations For Electric Vehicles

I want to crack jokes about this (just to be a jerk) but I think this might be something Apple could be really good at. Maybe this is what Apple has been working on the whole time that people thought the company was developing an electric car.

Apple Inc is investigating how to charge electric cars, talking to charging station companies and hiring engineers with expertise in the area, according to people familiar with the matter and a review of LinkedIn profiles. The moves show Apple responding to a key shortcoming of electric vehicles: "filling up" the batteries. A shortage of public charging stations, and the hours wasted in charging a car, could be an opportunity for Apple, whose simple designs have transformed consumer electronics.
