Apple Isn't Building A Car Anymore

Let's see if I got this right, a car program that has never been announced, never even proven to exist has now somehow been cancelled? Well isn't that convenient? I hate to say it, but we called this one from the very beginning.

Remember Apple's ambitious, long-rumored and totally not top-secret plan to build a self-driving car for the masses? According to Bloomberg, it's dead, with several hundred employees being reassigned to other parts of the company's business. The project, codenamed Titan, has been scaled back from a full-blown vehicle to simply a self-driving system that can be sold to car makers for use in their own vehicles. It gets worse, since Titan's leaders have been told that their team needs to produce something feasible before the end of 2017, or else.
