    Even though Tim Cook deftly avoided any "incriminating" Apple Car intel during his recent conversations at the WSJD Live event in Laguna Beach, California, he still couldn't help planting the seed for something down the line. Cook had choice words to declare regarding the auto industry, and if he is correct, then the big auto manufacturers should take notice.

    According to Tim Cook's point of view, the entire auto industry is in for a huge shakeup over the next few years. In fact, Cook believes that the auto industry is moving rapidly toward a paradigm shift that will be nothing short of revolutionary. Cook pointed out that most of the the major technological innovations in the car industry show a marked shift away from traditional combustion engines into what he called the "electrification" of the vehicle.

    Here are several quotes from his interview with a few more details,

    There you have it, straight from Apple's CEO. It seems obvious that Tim Cook has brilliantly laid the groundwork for a future push from Apple into the automobile markets. What do you think?

    If he's talking "electrification" as the "big paradigm shift" he may well find himself behind the times. He should be addressing driverless cars, not that far around the corner, regardless of the means of propulsion. (People haven't given up on working with hydrogen fuel, for example)
    And of course with those self-driving cars you can have a much more interactive iPad/iPhone experience :) without worrying about getting booked.
