 1.  No, Apple cannot wait until they reach hundreds of millions to respond.  As more people subscribe, they will buy less.http://press.spotify.com/us/information/Some fast figuresPaying subscribers: Over 10 million Active users: Over 40 million* Ratio of paying subscribers to active free users: Over 20% Revenue paid to rights holders since launch: $1bn Number of songs: Over 20 million** Number of songs added per day: Over 20,000 Number of playlists: Over 1.5 billion...
1.  Don't be foolish, Spotify is determined to take a bite out of iTunes and remember that iTunes content is key behind the success of iPhones, iPads and iPods etc...  People like the idea of having full access to all the latest music for a small yearly fee.  Apple needs to provide that.Check this out... 2.  These guys are not designers nor are they engineers but the record labels and media houses will trust them with deals that they would never trust current Apple...
 Apple is about make a lot of ordinary people millionaires.There is still time to invest.I wish. That would have made me a millionaire soon.
 1.  Apple need to revamp iTunes ASAP as subscription music outfits are a threat to the iTunes model long term.2.  Apple is buying Beats for what Iovine and Dre can do for Apple and not just what they have.3.  If Iovine and Dre can help revamp iTunes and get iTV off the ground, they're worth more than $3 Billion to Apple.  They may already have been instrumental in getting iTunes off of the ground with Steve Jobs, leading to a $500+ Billion market cap for Apple. You need...

These guys have been friends with Apple leaders for years and they have been building what they advised Apple to build and Apple chose not to.Now Apple realizes that some of these ideas were not all bad.Do you think Steve Jobs just pull anyone off of the street to include in his public presentations?I know that some people here can't understand this but you need friends from all walks of life and backgrounds in order to succeed sometimes.Life is not just about pushing...
You are only seeing once side of Apple.There is a side where the Beats founders friendship with Steve Jobs contributed to iTunes' success.There is a not so pretty side that makes cutthroat deals using shell companies with labels and media content owners that many choose not to see.Think of how corporations work, you can't be as big and successful as Apple and be all pretty.  Some people have to do the dirty work.Remember, Beats is a very successful company in its own...
If you understood Beats history with Apple, you would understand why they are buying Beats.
I hope they kick Amazon's butt.  They most certainly deserve it.
