Even if all these things are true how did they come up with a $3.2B valuation? What were their recent profits? I have to at least trust that Tim et al.aren't stupid and know more than any of us commenting and if this turns out to be true they have a very good reason. From the outside looking in it doesn't appear to be a wise buy but we shall see. Beats has a high percentage of the headphone market even though the quality doesn't seem to match the price of their products...
Why?   Beats make over priced mediocre headphones and a music service few use. $3.2B???    I can think of several companies I wish Apple would  buy like Broadcom, Netflix, or Nintendo then close their hardware and move all game titles to iOS and OS X. I really hope this rumor is bogus. 
 Apple bet the farm on the iPhone. Steve Jobs was willing to gamble the entire company on the success or failure of the iPhone. People quickly forget that Apple wasn't the behemoth it is now back then. It was a doing okay thanks to the iPod but was hardly in any position to dictate anything.  Sony-Ericsson could have taken the same risk that Apple did but they chose not to. The rest is history
Glad you have come around DED. I remember debating this with you a few years back on your RD blog in comments and you were absolutely adamant that 3.5" was the perfect size. This was around the time of the iPhone 3 to 4s timeframe when you still had Microsoft in your sights. I miss those articles where you blasted Microsoft and Windows before Google became the focus of your attention.  Times change and so do consumer tastes. When the first iPhone came out it did seem large...
The war on hackers is no different than the war on drugs. You find one tunnel and bury it and they build new ones or start using boats and planes to cross the border. Apple does a decent job with security even if they do tend to take their sweet time sometimes with patches. All any company can ever do is to try and make it as difficult as possible for hackers and be far more difficult to hack than the competition. Like the old expression goes you don't need to outrun a...

 Whatever the origin it is pretty offensive. I am not even a PC (as in politically correct) sort of person by any means but when you watch episodes on Southpark about gingers and Daniel Tosh for example you get the feeling all the racists/bigots who used to like to talk about other minorities and groups that can no longer safely get away with it now focus on red heads as a safe target. Growing up you get pretty sick and tired of hearing kids in elementary school say things...
Flirting with $600 again today. Currently near $598
Apple needs to do more staggered releases throughout the year with a new introduction of a product every quarter if possible. Far too many times recently many new products are released at once and then most of the rest of the year nothing. If Apple releases multiple iPhone sizes for example the 5.5" might have more impact around April which is the time Samsung tends to release their new Galaxy. Fall for the smaller and Spring for the larger one would keep the excitement...
Thanks Marvin. I suppose I just have my old mentality from years and years of buying and using the dual CPU Mac Pro's. My current one is still serving me well so I will not be in the market for the new type Mac Pro for another year or two. I tend to buy the next to fastest one as this tends to give me the best bang for the buck since I hold on to them for so long. I don't game as much on my Mac Pro as I used to so video cards that can't be upgraded easily or cheaply like...
