Elon Musk backtracks on criticism of Apple

Elon Musk, the driving force behind Tesla, has backtracked on his recent criticism of Apple after he suggested the company was a “graveyard of former Tesla employees” and also had some less than complimentary comments about the new Apple Watch.

This is not like Elon Musk as he normally keeps his head down and focuses upon his own company. Is he beginning to get bored of Tesla? Or has he been misquoted/misrepresented by the press?
