    They should cut it to zero. If this is true, the leverage is on the other side - a tape recording or something.

  • Report: Apple/Beats slowed down by financial details, fit concerns [View news story]
    Nice video. Heheheh. This kind of "art" will be widely despised and laughed at in 10-20 years, but Apple's brand will suffer irreparable damage.

    It will be even more fortunate if this acquisition does not happen at all.

  • Apple: Now Things Get Really Interesting [View article]
    It seems like the most common argument for the Beats acquisition is that it is small change for Apple. But having a lot of money does not mean that one can start wasting it. A little here, a little there, and you are bankrupt in no time. My own conspiracy sense tells me that we are dealing with a machination here, to which Apple is not very willing party.

  • Apple reportedly drawn to Beats' streaming service; sell-side has its doubts [View news story]
    Too much money for that kind of a service. The primary beneficiaries of this deal would be Jimmy Bovine, Dr. Dreck, and Gargoyle Investment Group (highly "mangleable" names), but not Apple and its shareholders.

  • Apple's Curious Acquisition [View article]
    … or they may be another reason behind the rumored acquisition, something that has nothing to do with technology or other aspects of Apple's business.

  • Apple + Beats: Cutting Through The Hype And Negativity [View article]
    "Apple has ~800 million credit cards already on file via iTunes/App Store accounts. If Apple can convince even a fraction of these customers to migrate over to a new paid streaming service it could easily grow to rival the more established players."

    800 million number is for all kinds of purchases. How many of those download music, and so often that might consider using a streaming service?
    This deal tarnishes Apple's image, making the company chase customers who have no loyalty or discernment, plus, the Carlyle's investment and subsequent sale looks awfully suspicious.
