Of course I know what was written and what it means, you said that there were mental defectives within the EU (I don't deny that, the UK put some of them there) in direct relation to a decision on anti-competitive evaluation.  Since the decision went Apple's favour, and I don't think for a second you'd consider that mentally defective, the implication has to be that the very existence of an evaluation means that there are mental defectives.  Which is what I responded with.  To which, as per normal, you retort with nothing of any substance, just jibes about your critics' reading ability - even though we saw direct evidence in another thread that it's you who don't read posts carefully.

 

Obviously you're just mouthing off as normal, so I shouldn't bother responding at all, but I do so hate to see your pompous ridiculousness go unchallenged.

Oh, so you think Apple will keep selling Beats’ hardware?

Which cannot apply to the purchase of an American company by an American company. 

An American company that does business in the EU buys an American company that does business in the EU. That gives the EU a say.

I have no idea.  Maybe they will, maybe they won't.  They're keeping the software under the Beats brand, and it would seem rather wasteful to just throw the hardware brand value away.  But what does that have to do with the EU Commission being mentally defective?

People should get beaten for jokes like that.

Oh yeah? Why don't you try to beat me, I'm all ears.

 

Now, now, let's save our boxes for speakers, not ears, shall we?

Maybe they don't have any authority and are just saying they're ok with it. I'm ok with it too as it happens.

 

Lol. Me too. Only now can Apple breathe a sigh of relief.

Can't wait till Apple gains control and improves the tech in the headphones. 

Beats has the look down, but needs help on the tech side.


I suppose each to their own with regards to the design of the Beats headphones, personally they are not to my taste.

 

Tacky plastic is not really my thing, that's why I like my Apple products.

 

I wish Apple had bought Bowers & Wilkins, now there is a company that offers quality along with taste and design in spades!

 

I wasn't aware that Bowers & Wilkins made gardening tools. Thanks for enlightening me.
