After last week's product launches of the iPhone 6 family, the introduction of the Apple Watch, and the roll out of Apple Pay, it's safe to say that Tim Cook may even surpass the height that Steve Jobs brought back to Apple when he returned from his exile in the wilderness.
It turns out that phrase isn't as simple as it sounds. I think what's most important is that the car you're considering is actually built in the U.S., even if the automaker is based elsewhere. Here's why.
At Apple's most recent product launch in Cupertino -- where Apple Watch, Apple Pay and iPhone 6 (oh, and iPhone 6 Gigantic) were flaunted about like t...

I came out 21 years ago. In my line of work as an actor and comedian, it has been one of the single best choices I have made for both my career and life. But I got to make that choice for myself. This brings us to Simon Hobbs.
