I'm a bit bemused by these 2 rumours too!
Just to set things straight I'm quite satisfied with Apples presentations, you think that the quip Phil made would carry any weight
if it weren't for the revealing of Mac Pro?

Apple needs a face that speaks for it that is memorable, like John Hodgman or Carly Foulkes, the girl-in-the-pink-dress was for T-mobile. Cook & crew may be the best managers, but they stink as the public face of Apple.
Apple still know how to entertain & Federighi is a good presenter, maybe it's the hair!
Getting back to the question of Jimmy lovine he maybe their to give that missing essence of Jobs in the form of Love of Music, as of late there really wasn't
an event with musical ending.
More over Apple did have Harman Kardon make pro-speakers for them, they HK are owners of AKG headphones they AKG have made a Dre Beats
version of their 700 - 400 series. I love the retro look of the "akg 701"
If they could make & improve those headphones tech wise but keep the look.
On the front of their model for subscription, I don't know anything about their sound-files & if those are higher quality?
Dre Beats bought out MOG (for 14M) which created deals for their mobile/sound system in all thing lap-tops, iPods, Cars etc
but to have Apple now buy DB for 3.2B is questionable & laughable.
