Wrong. The only reason Apple Music will have hangups is because DEMAND IS SO HUGE.  9-INCH NAILS WORTH OF HUGE.
Shame on you. The Think Different Campaign was meant to be political.  Every one of the individuals shown in the Think Different Campaign was also a significant political figure: Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali, Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart, Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog), Frank Lloyd...
You can get the case from Amazon.
Apple did the right thing. iTunes Music already pays artists the streaming rate. All Apple had to do is apply this to the 3 months of streaming. So Apple pays what it is already paying. And artists gain some income. It is a win-win.
Apple Music doesn't kill iTunes Radio.  This is still FREE to iTunes users, and streams with ads.  You can remove the ads and get new copies of every song in your collection by paying $25 a year - about $2 a month.
If you aren't into music as much, then there is iTunes Radio for you.  It is FREE.   And if you want no ads and new copies of every song in your iTunes Collection, then iTunes Match for $25 a year = $2 a month = should be good enough for you. The new Apple Music is for people who actually still care about music.  They usually purchase about 15 CDs a year at an average cost of $150. So if you belong in this class of people, then Apple Music is fantastic for you.  Not only...
Apple brutally fires people who are incompetent - particularly those who have responsibility - like Vice Presidents at Apple. They have no excuse not to get their job done. Obviously Skanska and DPR were incompetent. Delays and a $2 BILLION cost overrun are inexcusable.
Cash is not at all a burden.  Apple is highly valuable because it has so much cash.  It would be worth far less without the cash. $50 Billion for strategic M&A is absolutely not enough.   Having so little money would make Apple's stock completely unstable. Apple spends billions on its supply chain.  That is where most of its investment lies.  And Apple spends way ahead of time to get all of the supplies it needs for years.  With Apple's bond purchases, Apple seeks to grow...
Berkshire Hathaway is not an insurance company.  It owns all of an insurance company as well as owns other companies.  Berkshire Hathaway likes buying whole companies as investments. Apple doesn't buy whole companies unless it gets IP or people to add to Apple.  So it is totally unlike Berkshire Hathaway.
Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Ports are the future.
