We live in strange times.
Is WhatsApp worth $19 billion? And yet.
I'm not worried about price, but about direction. Are we going to see iPhones and iPads featuring much more prominently in rap music videos, together with Beats headphones, bling rings and chains... and some extra swearing?
I'd be much happier if Apple purchased a bit less exposed but better value for the money headphones brand, and got music streaming from some less exposed streaming service as well. Until TC gives some good (and yet unseen) explanation, this looks more like buying some celebrities, most of all.
