The latter maybe. I doubt the license agreements transfer to Apple that easily however, and certainly, all those would require renegotiation sooner or later.
We all are acutely aware (as Apple fans) that precisely being massively popular and successful is guaranteed to draw negative commentary (click bait). While I agree that Beats aren't quite what I would choose (in the end I recently bought Bose, but only because their noise cancelling is in a league of its own, not because I love the sound), I think it's an overstatement to say they suck (I thought the Studios sounded pretty good). You can't sell that many of something that...
One thing I've noticed whenever entering an Apple Store. After Apple products, the most square footage is occupied by headphones. That means they sell, and Apple knows which ones sell best. Why not make all the profit, instead of being just the middle man for someone else? It also fits, as has been pointed out, with the intersection of fashion and tech ... this is where Apple excels, and something they intend to build on, with the hiring of Ahrendts. I agree, 3.2B is a...
So diamonds aren't forever, after all.
 Keep telling yourself that. There is no competition for what Apple is going to introduce ... doing innovation right takes time, and is usually worth the wait. Apple will introduce a product that will make people's lives a little better, not just pass on phone notifications.
This looks purely like a stock-pumping exercise to me. I'm guessing some big MS clients took a big hit with the recent dip in AAPL, and KH is simply doing her best to help them recover. After all, there is no actual news here, it's a completely hypothetical "IF Apple does X, then Y" ... in other words a positive but vacuous puff-piece. 
Actually, the after hours price is actually positive now ... I think the knee-jerk sell-off isn't going to net much gain for the "sell on the news" crowd this time. They may even have to buy back in for more than they what they sold. These are solid numbers that are better than the figures that were already factored into the stocks price. The current product line-up is excellent (great iPads to propel Apple thru the Xmas quarter), and guidance is just fine. On top of...
Wow, this is the first time is a while that AAPL hasn't lost 10% in the days after a major announcement (of course it always recovers, like after the recent iPhone announcement). It tried yesterday (was briefly down a couple buck during the keynote), but the hits just kept coming yesterday. My only disappointments were lack of TouchID, which I suspect is a supply issue, and mostly the lack of a new cinema display (which would be low volume, but still). Seriously, who's...
Who says a delayed mini release wasn't the plan all along. Apple certainly never declared any intention to release both a new iPad and mini at the same time. Last year was a first, and arguably the minor iPad 4 update was only intended to get the new connector out. It's just silly for analysts to generalise from that one event.   In the past, Apple *often* released their premium devices (like a MacBook Pro) before the more budget products (like iBooks, remember those...
 Well, while I agree that this is bad luck for Apple, it seems to me like a pretty clear and fundamental principle of German patent law (i.e. apply for patent before public disclosure) ... to dismiss it as a technicality is a bit much (but I know what you meant). It's not clear the court had any other choice in its decision, given that's the law. Apple has been a multinational for years, and should really know the rules of the game outside of the US.
