I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

Still feeling kind of :\ about the beats acquisition/partnership. Wish they had paired with a legit audio company instead.

my jaw left (Hurting 2), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 16:04 (4 days ago) Permalink

If they acquire a legit audio company, it'll be a tiny one working on compression/encoding, possibly to develop Apple-owned on-chip audio IP, and it won't be remotely high-profile. Apple seems to have acquired Beats do to what Apple saw as a brand with immense strategic value, not to mention a streaming music service.

One of the cliche knocks against Apple products is that they're all flash and no substance. That this actually seems to be true of Beats headphones might be a risk to Apple, but there's no reason Apple couldn't invest in improving what goes into Beats. I think we could see Dre on stage at an Apple event introducing something kinda cool.

Spirit of Match Game '76 (silby), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 17:11 (4 days ago) Permalink

I'm curious but skeptical about them entering the streaming biz. They seem a little late to the table and it's hard to imagine what they could offer that vastly improves on Spotify, although maybe they're counting on a significant market in people that haven't entered streaming at all but would do it with Apple holding their hand.

my jaw left (Hurting 2), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 17:18 (4 days ago) Permalink

As far as the strategic value otherwise, I don't quite get it. Apple products with "Beats Audio Inside"? Seems out of character, plus I think some other PC maker did that and it wasn't a major success. I feel like Beats is a little like the U2 album -- a product that only appeals to one slice of Apple's customer base, where it would be a mistake to push it on everyone.

my jaw left (Hurting 2), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 17:21 (4 days ago) Permalink

I never started paying for Spotify because I guess until recently they had two tiers and my regret-minimization circuits were overloaded.

Spirit of Match Game '76 (silby), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 17:22 (4 days ago) Permalink

I feel like it might also be a slightly hamfisted play to stay "relevant," avoid looking like purely a boomer company.

my jaw left (Hurting 2), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 17:22 (4 days ago) Permalink

well, put it this way, iTunes has sort of screwed the pooch branding-wise, witness everyone itt complaining about it every year, and Apple's music sales ecosystem is bound up in it, and that business is shrinking rapidly YoY. Picking up Beats just for Beats Music, a streaming service with a valuable brand attached (with an Android app no less) could be strategically valuable just for that reason. $3 billion valuable, who knows, but it's not like Apple is worried about wasting shareholder value on an acquisition of that scale given their cash reserves.

Spirit of Match Game '76 (silby), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 17:26 (4 days ago) Permalink

lol @ "legit audio company"

afaik beats are pretty ehhh when it comes to sound quality but they're very iconic, have strong build quality, and imo have better artist engagement than the iTunes festival and Apple's repeated U2 interaction. I can't imagine an acquisition of a high-end DAC company or a good independent shop like Grado. Who else would they have bought, Bose? (ugh)

⌘-B (mh), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 17:48 (4 days ago) Permalink

just wanna be clear, nobody here is excited about AppleBeats 'phones, right?

like sure, maybe they'll sell. great.

ugh (lukas), Tuesday, 28 October 2014 17:54 (4 days ago) Permalink

I don't really see a point in them buying an audio company period, tbh, different competencies. I doubt the "strength" of the Beats brand too, it's still on the new and trendy side, could easily seem dated in a few years (and I already don't see the headphones out that often anymore where I used to see them all the time).

All speculative, I know. Definitely not a huge risk for them in any case.

Beats purchase seems like an obvious attempt to get back the music cachet they've lost, with the disappointments of Ping and iTunes Match

CurrentC hacked already!

MCX, the company behind CurrentC, sent out the email on Wednesday, revealing that its security systems were breached by unauthorized third parties within the last 36 hours. The company says its investigations suggest that only users' email addresses were obtained, but not any additional information.

Multiple AppleInsider readers sent a copy of the note that MCX sent to pilot program participants on Wednesday. Currently in trial, CurrentC is expected to launch at some point in 2015.

The system has found itself in the midst of a controversy over both Apple Pay and Google Wallet, as retailers participating in CurrentC are forbidden from offering alternative mobile payment systems. As a result, both Rite Aid and CVS shut down their NFC-based payment systems this past weekend, blocking the recently launched Apple Pay.

I've had the iPhone 6 for about two weeks and it's cracked :( I don't even know how it happened. i was going to get a fucking case! But now it's too late. ;__;

whoa, that sux. Have you taken it to the apple store? If you explain to them what happened they might replace the screen or the phone free.

Buy Applecare and you can then get it replaced for like $75 or w/e the deductible is
