Supposedly Apple bought Beats for Jimmy Iovine's deal making prowess and industry gravitas. If Apple TV's UI aggregates TV shows by genre instead of channel or tier, as I imagine it does, then you can imagine how scary and disruptive it is for the cable industry. Who profits from this disruption, Apple or the cable companies? That's the hangup!

Totally agree! I won't know until it's revealed but I believe I understand Job's vision; a genre-centric Genius-like search engine and TV show aggregator. Apple TV employs the same old IOS app paradigm, cram them next to each other willy-nilly. This stale paradigm is why I prefer OS X over IOS. I think IOS and Apple TV both need a reboot.
I'd imagine Apple took contractual precautions to deduct such predictable legal flack from Beats financial end of the deal.
I own a few shares... Ouch!
Wake me when ready.
Why does AI editorialize on other people's editorials? Do you consider AI reader's too stupid to comprehend quotes from an outside review without AI's interpretation and intervention? Why not put pertinent quotes in context and provide actual links to the article? Isn't AI embarrassed to craft such an obvious hit piece? I don't know if the Fire phone is good or not but AI's hit piece certainly isn't credible.
Anecdotally, I bought a 128 GB iPad Air, my first tablet, last year. It primarily collects dust. iPad excels at presentations and as an aggregator of all my media files, but I prefer working on my iMac or surfing the web on my MB air. Obviously your mileage may vary and some people are hooked on tablets but I can personally understand why table sales are waning.
Jay Carney obviously elicits an abundance of negative feelings. That, and the permanent scowl embedded in his cheeks from endlessly being grilled by the media, should put the kibosh on this stupid idea.
