    I don't know about that. The highway system is expensive enough even without carpeting.

    Though there have been some recent rumors about Apple getting back to their car project. Apple hints at plan to build a car after all as it rehires ex-Tesla engineering head – TechCrunch

    Are they aiming for the street sweeper market? ;) Looks a lot like a huge vacuum cleaner.

    Does it have a cleanable container, or does it have replaceable bags?

    It must be portable. Looks like it has a handle on the rear.

    I don't care if it looks like a 50's Hoover, I just want more people working on solid state batts.

    Reminds me of the old creed from when I worked for DEC "Nothing sucks like a VAX"¹

    ¹ actually used as a (failed) advertising slogan for VAX vacuum cleaners (UK firm: VAX UK Ltd)
