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.

If you’ve been using the same furniture for 15+ years or find yourself watching “House Hunters” and wanting to redo every inch of your home, it might (hint: it is) be time for an upgrade.

Though HGTV might tell you otherwise, you don’t need to replace all of your furniture or demolish half of your place to give it a refresh. In fact, a couple of new products and fixtures can modernize any space without the cost of a total remodel.

The race is on. Waymo and Tesla are locked in a battle to reach the holy grail of full, level five autonomous driving first. Waymo, which started life as Google’s self-driving car project, has started trials of self-driving taxis in the Phoenix area. Tesla, with hundreds of thousands of electric vehicles already on the road, instead wants to upgrade existing cars with software updates to gradually enable autonomous driving for customers.

The Boring Company’s first tunnel is about to open to the public, two years after Elon Musk first announced his digging venture. The founder announced on Monday that the firm’s Hawthorne tunnel, located by the SpaceX campus in California, will host a grand opening on December 10 and offer free rides to the public the following day.

Apple’s newly announced iPad Pros are the latest in a long-standing mission to convert laptop users into tablet users. Based on the early reviews, the 2018 iPad Pro has come closer than any of Apple’s tablets so far.

To achieve this, the new iPad Pro boasts extra slender bezels, Face ID instead of the touch ID home button, a wirelessly charging Apple Pencil, and, perhaps most notably, a USB Type C charging port instead of a Lighting jack. Under the hood it’s also a force to be reckoned with, powered by Apple’s eight-core A12X Bionic processor, which the company has said is faster than 92 percent of current PC laptops and can support Xbox One S-quality graphics.
