- Tesla has announced a new 'Cyberwhistle'.
- It's a stainless steel whistle that costs $50.
- Musk mocked Apple customers on Twitter, saying they should ignore the Apple Cloth and buy this instead.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has mocked Apple's $19 cleaning cloth and told his Twitter followers to buy Tesla's $50 Cyberwhistle instead.
Musk followed up and said, "Don't waste your money on that silly Apple Cloth, buy our whistle instead!"
This isn't the first time Elon Musk has trolled Apple over its cleaning cloth. From October:
Tesla CEO and Founder Elon Musk has mercilessly trolled Tim Cook on Twiter over Apple's new $19 cleaning cloth.
Cook posted on Friday in celebration of Apple's new store in Istanbul stating:
Introducing Apple Bağdat Caddesi, our beautiful new store in Istanbul. We're glad to be a part of this vibrant community and we can't wait to welcome customers to this spectacular new space.
Musk replied to the tweet stating "Come see the Apple Cloth TM" much to the joy of the internet.
The Cloth is very hard to get your hands on, with shipping pushed back into January. The Cyberwhistle is totally sold out on the other hand, except on eBay at 7 or 8 times its $50 price tag. Apple's cloth is made with "soft, non-abrasive material" and even got the teardown treatment from iFixit as people bought into the joke.
