 Apple's purchase of Beats has nothing to do with the people in the video and picture...One of the musician cofounders is partying a little with some friends about the deal.  So what?Try to understand why Beats really means to Apple, especially at this time.If you don't understand then just trust the Apple execs to do the right thing.Apple is paying about 8 times what they paid for NeXT on this deal.  Their biggest purchase ever.
Imagine a globally available subscription of Music / Audio and TV / Video.   What company in the world can offer such a subscription?
 You have no idea what Apple is buying here...  hence your predilection for irrelevancy.
 Yes it does make you very childish.It's easy for you to push the pretty little buttons on iTunes and iPhones to listen to sweet music.Do you have any idea where the music comes from and what it takes to make the music business work?Just how old are you really?  Grow up already!
 You like iTunes media's pretty interface but you apparently have no idea where it comes from and how Apple gets it.Apple would never be able to get what they are getting with Beats on their own.  It's a matter of trust and old boys club.
 Oh please...  Grow up!  Will you?
This is awesome! Some people just don't understand the kind of media connections iTunes is getting in this deal... Jimmy Iovine is a senior executive at Vivendi Universal Music Group. Beats investor Carlyle Group / Len Blatvatnik recently bought Warner Music Group. Vivendi owns about 14% of Beats. iTunes is about to become the biggest money maker for Apple. iTunes will own the global music industry if they didn't already. Wake up people. This is huge for Apple. As...
A lot of people like Beats Audio including myself although I am a Sennheiser fan.  They currently have over 50% of the premium market and it's not just because of fashion, the headphones sound good.More importantly, the contracts for Beats Music are worth a fortune and are not easy to get even if you have the money. There are a few things companies like Apple gladly pay for if it fits their need:1.  Cost savings   (How much would it cost to do from scratch)2.  Regulatory /...
You don't understand that it is not easy to get products like Beats Music or Spotify off the ground and time is money.  It takes a long time and a costs a lot of money to get the contract agreements if you can get them at all.  The industry would even challenge Apple more aggressively because they are Apple.  It is easy for Apple to scoop this up and make money because it is already a successful business with no legal problems. -As soon as Apple signs the $3.2 B check and...
Let's see... Spotify is worth $4 B... Pandora is worth $5.4 B...   $3.2 B for Beats is not so crazy at all...  Plus they have hardware patents that are licensed globally and strong media industry connections...   I predict that this deal will happen and will be a huge success.   iTunes is becoming Apple's biggest money maker.
