Why would Apple business development executives meet with Tesla Motors?

A few days ago rumors of Apple/Tesla meetings resurfaced, and conclusions were once again leapt to about a possible acquisition. It’s unfortunate that most people writing about the topic seems to have nothing but mergers and acquisitions (M&A) on the brain. I think there is absolutely no chance that happening and what's more β€” I think there are far more interesting possibilities to consider here.

Thinner MacBooks make bigger battery problems

When it comes to batteries, Apple could do a better job. Batteries wear out. They stop holding a charge. What's worse, sometimes they fail dramatically. They swell up, distort. That's what recently happened to my wife's four-year-old white MacBook. Now the MacBook is physically damaged because of it.

Mophie Ju

Dieter's at the IGA show in Berlin, Germany and he's scored us a first look at mophie's upcoming Juice Pack Air for iPhone 4. It's got soft touch paint and they claim ZERO signal degredation because the entire PCB board is on the bottom, so there are no electronics around the antenna. It's shipping to Apple now and will be available in "Nationwide retailers" next week for $79.95.

Mophie Juice Pack air for iPhone 4 comes in black, white, red, and green and "virtually doubles your power". 6 hours talk time, 5 hours internet 3G, and 9 hours on wifi courtesy of a 1500mAh battery. It also sports pass-through USB for power, iTunes sync, and can be switched off when not in use.

What Dieter saw was prototype hardware, but felt very thin and good to him, especially the soft touch finish.

Also being shown off was the Juice Pack Power Station, which sports 2.1 Amp output so it can power and iPad. This one rates 3600 mAh and has a USB cable included to charge it. And the Marketplace

Should the iPhone Have a Removable Battery? The EU Says Yes!

The European Union is known to be a little more hard core than North American regulators. Just ask Microsoft about their Windows monopoly fines, or Apple about iTunes pricing and DRM. Now, however, Apple Insider reports that the EU might just be getting ready to fire another shot across Apple's bow with a "New Batteries Directive" that says power cells must be "readily removable":
