Really? I'm not an expert on headphones, but those who are rate Beats as middlin' at best. Like Beats, Apple attracts the style-conscious, but unlike Beats Apple also attracts those for whom only the best is good enough.

Would love to hear what the numbers are in terms of how many chose Apple or PC.

I want to watch Siri and Cortana "work" together. 😛
It's possibly a good move for Microsoft. Enterprise was once the equal partner with consumer products in their overall game plan. As the consumer side shrinks under Apple pressure, enterprise is becoming their main tent pole. BB, for all its woes, continues to maintain a foothold in enterprise.
