  The irony that Beats' genre niche is the one with the least respect for trademarks and copyrights isn't lost.  Dr. Dre himself has been in lawsuits involving music lifted in beyond legal amounts from others' works and several have been ruled not in his favor.    It will be interesting to see if he is able to garner enough sympathy to support his newfound concern for the rights of the property owner.
  I'm no fan of Beats but it's no more a scam than the AC unit I had that the manufacturer had zero info about the spec that I wanted, or the external hard drive tech chart that doesn't even tell you the cache or speed of the drive inside.  If they don't want you to know it's usually all you need to know. In Beats' case legit freq response charts are out there, though for sure nowhere on their site, and they're not that hard to find. (Search images instead of web.)  Just...
 Misses the point completely, as does everyone who brings this up. Beats has never marketed itself as a headphone for "Pro" audio or those who listen to music where subtle details in the audio would make any qualitative difference. Rather they have been about making money, like any company, and they sell a hell of a lot of product. And while Beyerdynamic shares their smaller market niche with handfuls of other manufacturers, Beats has dominated theirs (in fact they top...
 But that's not the case at all and misses the problem Apple has.  I knew everything about the Apple TV as well as every other option when I walked in the Best Buy and walked out with my Roku and I've never regretted it.  And, as I said earlier, we're an entirely Mac family for computers, tablets and smartphones yet Apple couldn't sway me at the time.  Their motto at the time was: Apple TV:  For people who like to go on faith
We're a totally Mac family. Two and a half years ago we got a single Roku and it handles our needs fine. It just seemed a safer bet at the time and I think we're the kind of family which are many but not mentioned much in these kinds of discussions in that we have one 24" TV monitor and our watching habits are modest but we do like what we watch and have no desire to have bigger, more, higher res than we have. Nobody watches sports or current seriesand although it's...
Itunes Gift Cards don't hold a candle to cold, hard cash.
 Logic had a significant update a month ago so it's not part of these.
 I've viewed the Henge vertical docks with puzzlement, as I could never figure out, if it's not giving you new ports, what their value for the price was.  Reviews never seemed to say enough to change my mind.  Then here's an AI review and I think "OK, great, now I'll learn about what's so good about this thing".  And it doesn't say anything, unless I'm missing it somehow.  It doesn't say what it does and doesn't do!   It talks a lot about the design and blah blah, and if...
Do what busloads of people do daily: hop on one down to the Apple Store in the Christiana Mall in Delaware, not far from the northern border. No sales tax, and you don't need to declare your state's % going there in person, at around $30 roundtrip. In the second smallest state by area (and one of the smallest populations) It's supposedly the biggest seller of certain Apple products in the country except for the NYC 5th Ave store, which is open 24 hours.
 Lorin, I agree with you, and also with what you say about not "happily" forking over Apple prices but begrudgingly paying them.  There is a difference. But I don't think Apple is confused.  I think they just see X as who they're aiming at and not Y.  Sadly, historically Apple's lower cost products often prove to still be an expensive decision for those who need convincing the most, yet ironically have no special needs, and under-featured and powered for those who would...
