To cash in on the hype of overpriced accessories like the $19 Apple Polishing Cloth, Tesla has also launched a new “Cyberwhistle” collectible accessory. CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk announced the new limited-edition whistle on his Twitter account explaining that it is inspired by their upcoming Cybertruck automobile. However, the announcement did not end there; Mr. Musk used the opportunity to take another jab at Apple by criticizing its polishing cloth.
After the October 2021 MacBook Pro event, Apple quietly introduced a Microfiber Polishing Cloth with its logo on its online store. Although the company was dragged for selling a $19 cleaning cloth, the accessory was quickly sold out and now its delivery time is January 2022. Previously, Apple only shipped its Polishing Cloth with the high-end ‘Pro Display XDR’ but this year, it was available as a separate accessory for the first time. Samsung has also poked fun of Apple’s screen cleaning accessory like Mr. Musk.
Tesla’s Elon Musk refreshes rivalry with Apple at the announcement of its $50 Cyberwhistle
The new limited-edition Cyberwhistle is retailing for $50 on Tesla.com but it is already out of stock. As it is a ” final sale” item, Tesla might not restock the whistles.
“Inspired by Cybertruck, the limited-edition Cyberwhistle is a premium collectible made from medical-grade stainless steel with a polished finish. The whistle includes an integrated attachment feature for added versatility.”
The new accessory is sold-out within hours of the announcement and that is not surprising because loyal customers or fans of the company tend to buy such collectible items as Apple Polishing Cloth. But what’s distasteful about Tesla’s over-priced Cyberwhistle is Mr.Musk’s attack on Apple, yet again.
Musk’s beef with Apple started when rumor mills claimed that Apple is developing an autonomous passenger vehicle that will be powered by a revolutionary mono-cell battery to deliver a longer range and better power efficiency. The rivalry started with Musk publically expressing disbelief over such a battery technology and stating that Apple refused to buy Tesla for 1/100th of its current market value. Later, a report alleged that Mr.Musk had asked for $60 billion and to be made the CEO of Apple.
Don’t waste your money on that silly Apple Cloth, buy our whistle instead!
