No, I agree that Apple can reach another huge market here, but I wouldn't call it "downmarket" by going "cheaper."It's a matter of mindset, which Apple has shown us over and over again to be the primary starting point in this business of improving peoples' lives through artful technology.Beats has already accomplished this with their headphones by going against sound reproduction principles and making an acoustic environment that can be taken out in the world.

Where did that come from?That was a print interview he was referring to. One reporter, no video. Surprised you don't remember.
Really? You were there?Both of you are sick.Edit: to be clear, I mean you and your buddy Rogifan.
