Having come of age in the era of The Beatles and Stones I've yet to hear a rap song I even like, no less considered brilliant. Rap is my least favorite genre of music, but reasonable minds can differ! I simply fail to see the synergy in this deal between the players and brands. OTOH I've implored Tim Cook to think outside the box, and this deal certainly qualifies. My suspicion is the deal is "a beard" for a hidden aspect not readily apparently to the media or public.
Dr. Dre is going to replace Tim Cook as Apple's CEO. I heard it through the grapevine. 
Apple has lost considerable value under Cook and I've been critical of him for that. But I think this may be a corporate magic trick, a case of brilliant misdirection. I can't believe Apple will actually purchase Beats for $3.2B. It has to be total BS or there's an aspect to the story nobody publicly knows. It's a square peg in a round hole, simply doesn't fit!
Really miss him!
Pleased with AAPL's quarter and its newfound sensitivity toward the investment community. The financial engineering should buttress the company's value until it expands its pipeline.
My mistake. Thanks for pointing it out. AAPLSept 2012 - $700April 2014 - $526
 AAPLSept 2011 - $700April 2014 - $526 Apple's value is in an extended state of atrophy in an otherwise booming economy. Yes, I'd say that's a bloody mess!
Apple has become painfully predictable and stuck in slow motion innovation-wise. The media and Wall Street are correct! Tim Cook has put Apple in position where Cupertino now needs to prove it still possesses "fire in its belly".    ​My radar leads me to conclude the iWatch is imminent. That may move the needle! A larger iPhone will plug the dyke but I think it's too late to be significant because everyone expects it. By making Apple TV a hobby for way too long I fear...
I'll take a small one but for the sake of its stock value AAPL better make a jumbo!
That, my friend, is the problem! In terms of innovation, Apple has been in a state of suspended animation. And its advertising, with a few exceptions, has been an exercise of basking in past glory. A very boring exercise.
