Some Apple gossip is pure fantasy, but some of the hearsay has roots in the real world. The Apple car falls into the latter category, and if a new report from Korean site mk.co.kr is accurate, the company now plans to shoulder the entire development process of the autonomous and/or electric car on its own.

The market for collaboration tool has been sparked by Slack a few years ago. It has been subject to heavy fights since. Microsoft Teams not only entered the market but overtook the early mover quickly. The fight escalated perceivably when Slack accused Microsoft of ripping off its ads in late 2019.
