Sound like abad idea. An in house agency all eventually become an echo chamber from the lack of creative insight gained from working on problems out side of the box of Apple.
"While disappointing".... says who?
Apple sure knew how to bury this story by doing Beats announcement today and not next week
And "acqu-hire" makes no sense at 3 billion if they get sick and die. Someone point me to an acqu-hire anywhere that went for anything like this.
So let me get this straight, Beats has 110,000 subscribers while iTunes has 800 million credit cards on file and beats is worth 3 Billion how again?

If this is true, then it is the biggest waste of money in Apples history. No offense to either of these two guys, but no two mean are worth 3.5 billion dollars for their connections. They both could die in car accident next week and the money would be gone with them.
"it could use the keynote as an opportunity to formally introduce its two newest executives"   Let me help you write this accurately.   "it could use the keynote as an opportunity to formally introduce its RUMORED two newest executives"     Nothing has been confirmed and yet you write as if it has been.    That said, if this were true, given the reasons that were laid out why the would make sense for Apple, it would be the biggest waste of money in Apples...
Not for $8 Bil they shouldn't. Apple could build one for a less than a hundred million and outspend all the competitors combined on advertising for another $100 million.
I know 4 friends with business that use Square now. The only thing they have of worth is the customer base who already is using iPads, iPhones and iPod touches to interface with the product. Apple's customers. I can't imagine they have any technology Apple could not replicate. Its a credit card reader with syncing. Its piggy backs off the iPhones wireless for christ sake. If Apple made a better product, they just might switch if the hardware costs to dont set them back.
