It's pretty much impossible for Apple to avoid the headlines whenever it seems to be looking in a new direction. For the blogs and other sites, all that Apple Watch speculation paid off with an actual product, due this April. Now the world is wondering if Apple will dip its tootsies into the automotive market.

The explanation for Apple's car-related movements may end up being much less dramatic. One possibility is that Apple is simply working on expanding its CarPlay system.
There's a certain group of people who will happily buy anything Apple puts out. There are people who buy Apple products when they make sense as practical tech purchases. There are people who turn red and spit at the mere mention of Apple's name. But a car is in a different league from an iPhone. It's a huge expense and it's complicated, but there's something intriguing about the idea of turning designer Jony Ive loose on a vehicle with an Apple logo on the grill.
