In an interview with CNBC last Thursday, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak admitted that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has a lot in common with his friend and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. However, he does not believe that this multi-talented billionaire has the ability to run the business like his late friend.
Mr. Wozniak said: “I class them as having the ability to communicate and want to be seen as important and like a cult leader.”
“A lot of people will follow them no matter what they say and they will cross the line of judgment. A lot of cult leaders are like that,” added Mr. Wozniak, emphasizing that this is a bad thing.
According to Mr Wozniak’s description, his life is based on total honesty – something he doesn’t believe applies to Mr. Musk. “A lot of honesty disappears when you look at Elon Musk and Tesla. They stole a lot of money from my family, myself and my wife, […] by what they say makes us really believe it’s real.”
What Wozniak is referring to here is the Tesla he upgraded in 2016 – when Tesla first offered a beta for Full Self-Driving (FSD) – after Musk said that the autonomous vehicles to cross the country later that year.
Then in 2017, Mr. Wozniak and his wife spent another $50,000 on another car to upgrade to 8 cameras and many other sensors, when the Tesla CEO said this would help the car drive across the US. without driver intervention. But Wozniak said the car’s self-driving capabilities are clearly far behind what Musk promised. “It keeps crashing. What a horrible and scary experience.”
While Mr. Wozniak has said he admires Mr. Musk, including that he helped drive the shift from fossil fuel-powered cars to electric vehicles across the entire industry, he is highly displeased. marketing, untrue and dishonest statements of Tesla CEO.
While his late friend Wozniak is not like that. Mr. Wozniak said: “Steve Jobs wasn’t so dishonest. But he will say those things in a way […] just so he wants to get your attention,” said Mr. Wozniak.But it’s not really untrue either. You wouldn’t buy something thinking it would get an “A” but it turns out it won’t.”
Wozniak appeared to be one of many customers who bought a Tesla in 2016 because of Musk’s advertisement for Tesla’s driver assistance system, which included a video showing it being able to stop at a red light and go on its own. when the light is green. But recently, Tesla’s director of Autopilot software, Ashok Elluswamy, admitted that the video was staged and that as of 2016, those features have not yet appeared in Tesla vehicles.
In 2018, Tesla also had to settle a class-action lawsuit filed by customers who allege that the company’s semi-autonomous driver assistance system “basically unusable and very dangerous.“
