Apple is reportedly interested in acquiring Beats for $3.2 billion.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
1) Separate the rumored deal price from the transaction. It’s a lot of money for Apple and in many ways focusing too much on the money will make it difficult to focus on the underlining acquisition…
Interesting analysis. Lots of unanswered questions. Very different type of acquisition indeed. I suspect Apple will keep this as a separate business on the hardware side but fold the streaming side under iTunes. We’ll see.
