It makes me sick to my stomach just typing it. This entire deal makes me angry. As someone who would like to see Apple prosper (please do not interpret that to mean I’m a fangirl) I just can’t wrap my head around this deal. I will admit, I purchased a pair of craptastic Beats earbuds recently (read: within the past year) and was gravely disappointed. How could headphones cost this much and sound so horrible? At that point I ended any dealings with Beats. So when I heard that Apple purchased Beats…it was just a sad day.
