Controlling an Apple TV by talking into a Bluetooth remote makes lots of sense.   Speaking commands directly into a remote that you hold in your hand would likely have more accurate results than shouting at a box near your television. Also, you would need Bluetooth to transfer the voice data from the remote to the Apple TV. I think that kind of data transfer would not be possible with a simple infrared remote.
 How can you tell if a store has iBeacon Interesting. I've never been in a store that uses iBeacons, so I don't know what the experience is like.
This kind of indoor geolocation seems to depend on a system like iBeacon to already be in place. Do retailers have obvious incentives to implement iBeacons like they do with Apple Pay?
 I agree. But more so in regard to Apple. By giving in to Taylor Swift's demand, Apple has managed to convince the 20,000 indie labels under Merlin and Beggars Group to sign on to Apple Music. I'd say that's a productive day for Mr. Eddy Cue.
 I agree. Trying to fill quotas in that case seems not helpful.
 I see.  I read in another AI article that Apple Music "should ultimately pay better than Spotify". http://appleinsider.com/articles/15/06/23/tidal-loses-interim-ceo-peter-tonstad-on-eve-of-apple-music-launch If true, and depending on how much better AM pays, I'd say that might make up for not paying artists during the free trial period.
 That makes sense to me for "small local/independent artists" who may be struggling. But I certainly wouldn't put Taylor Swift in that category... haha.
I like what this says about Apple.   That they're not rushing to implement something that's not ready yet. And that they are continuing to test Liquidmetal until it is.
 A couple of questions. Are you comparing Apple Music's free trial rate to Spotify's regular rate? If so, isn't that an uneven comparison? Given that Spotify has a free tier and Apple Music doesn't, how does that affect the math?
 I agree that "making a company diverse for the sake of diversity is a fools errand." However, I think it's more nuanced than that. Sometimes there isn't a "best person" to hire. There might be several qualified candidates, each that would bring their own unique strengths to the company. And you might decide to hire one of these candidates over the others because she's a woman and would bring a unique perspective to a tech company that's 90% male.
