Apple buying Beats

I have a feeling it's for the streaming/backend stuff more than the headphones and brand. As far as the appointing Dr. Dre and the other guy to positions in Apple corporate I assume that was a bargaining chip and little more. Maybe an appearance WWDC this year and that's it.

Will Apple devices then have a switch for "iBeats off"? (If you do not get it, be sure to say aloud what is in quotes for everyone around you to hear.)

You'll have to toggle that setting through Siri and I can't wait to hear the response confirmation.

"Siri, this is very important for you to remember.  'iBeats off' all the time."

Be careful how you say it..... siri might ask if she should keep talking while "ibeatsOff" is active!

When AJ's around, everything takes a 270 degree turn in the odd direction. :P

It's still speculation, albeit very well founded speculation.

Dr. Dre already confirmed it in a Vine. He called himself Hip-Hop's first billionaire, not too long after it was reported that Apple was buying Beats.

He won't. He's only making 480 million from it...1% problems. I thought I was gonna be a billionaire and I am only getting almost 500 million dollars.

Right, because his current net worth is definitely $0.

Wow. I didn't even account for that. How stupid of me. Just looked it up and apparently his net worth is 800 mil or something. I guess it's appropriate that the deal alone wouldn't have made him a billionaire. But combined it probably will.

 

Good catch lol

Yes, $100,000 in cash, $100 million in gold jewelry, $300 million in weed, and $399.9 million in chicken wings.  He has the envy of Robert on that last asset.

I guess the cost of a set of beats headphones is about to be even higher than it already was. Hats off to Iovine and Dre for using culture and custom EQ to turn an idea into 3+ B

It's amazing how much making, then posting, a dumb Facebook video about being the first Hip-Hop millionaire could cost your company ~$200,000.

The Facebook video may or may not have been the reason that happened. Beats music wasn't as big as it was made out to be, just the headphone/speaker business.
