Apple could have a nearly incomprehensible amount of cash to burn in 2018 thanks to Donald Trump’s big tax cut, and one analysts’ report speculates the tech giant could make a game-changing acquisition by purchasing Netflix. There’s more than a little room for skepticism here, however.

Analysts from the investment bank Citi suggested there is a “40 percent chance” that Apple buys Netflix in 2018. That’s because Trump’s new tax law would allow the company to bring $220 billion in cash back into the country that was previously held offshore. That’s more than enough to buy Netflix for an estimated $75 billion.

Superficially, this would make some sense, as adding Netflix would let Apple grow its current limited supply of entertainment options, which is mostly just iTunes. The Citi analysts argue Apple would use this money newly laying around to buy the hybrid studio and streaming service.

“The firm has too much cash – nearly $250 billion – growing at $50 billion a year. This is a good problem to have,” Citi analysts Jim Suva and Asiya Merchant say. “Historically, Apple has avoided repatriating cash to the US to avoid high taxation. As such, tax reform may allow Apple to put this cash to use. With over 90 percent of its cash sitting overseas, a one-time 10% repatriation tax would give Apple $220 billion for M&A or buybacks.”

Regardless, the chances of it happening are pretty slim, despite potential urge to buy big after Disney’s recent earth-shattering acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

For one, Apple has already done some shopping during this quarter, acquiring music-recognizing app Shazam last month for an unconfirmed sum of $400 million. Its past acquisitions have also been focused on music, for example buying Beats Music for $3 billion in 2014 to venture into music streaming and hardware. Note that none of these come close to the $75 billion needed to buy something like Netflix.

Besides, when it comes to producing film and television, the move to put all its eggs into Netflix’s streaming basket isn’t very Apple-y.

The company has reportedly invested $1 billion toward creating original scripted TV shows, with the first one starring big A-listers Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston. Diverging away from that focus to buy Netflix for the reported $75 billion doesn’t make a lot of sense, Forbes notes.

Even the Citi analysts allow that there is a 60 percent chance that this deal will never happen, but Apple’s track record suggests the odds might be quite a bit higher than that.

The Apple Car is still on track, and it’s going to launch soon. That’s according to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who published a Tuesday report detailing the firm’s upcoming hardware roadmap that will double its $1 trillion market cap to reach all-new levels.

The report, shared by MacRumors, claims that the Apple Car will launch somewhere around 2023 and 2025 as the “next star product.” While previous reports around the company’s secretive project suggest Apple would instead develop an autonomous driving technology for use with other vehicles, Kuo claims that Apple will release its own branded car for four reasons: the automotive sector is being redefined by technology in the same way as the smartphone industry 10 years ago, Apple can differentiate with augmented reality and other technologies, car financing would help Apple’s services sector grow, and the company could do a better job of integrating hardware and software than existing automakers.

Apple has removed the seventh beta of iOS 12 from its developer download stream, just hours after it went live. The company pulled the plug on Tuesday, and the move came just after a slew of reports around slow performance and waiting for apps to launch. Apple did not release the update to public beta testers like normal.

Apple’s cheaper iPhone is about to look a whole lot cooler. On Sunday, prolific smartphone leaker Benjamin Geskin shared new photos of the company’s upcoming 6.1-inch smartphone, which Geskin has referred to as the “iPhone X Lite.” The new device maintains the same stylings as the $999 iPhone X, but with an expected price point of around $700.

Elon Musk praised the work of the OpenAI team on Monday, after a set of artificial intelligence bots beat a semi-professional team at the Dota 2 video game in a San Francisco showdown Sunday. Musk, who co-founded the research firm, marked the victory by reiterating the need for a brain-computer interface that would enable man and super-smart machine to coexist peacefully.

Currently, each HomePod unit has one true master. Users have to tie the speaker to an Apple ID and from then onward whoever interacts with it will be recognized as that one specific person. But a recent Apple’s filing suggests that the signature voice assistant might soon learn how to tell exactly who is speaking to it.
