Apple, the company that turned digital music into a mainstream phenomenon, said on Wednesday that it was buying Beats Electronics, the rising music brand, for $3 billion, in a move that will help it play catch-up with rivals that offer subscription-based music services.

I still have no idea why Apple is buying these guys. Then again, that's probably why I'm not a billionaire.

Coincidentally, I find it highly entertaining that technically, this is now an Apple product.

I just want to point out the futility of the EU elections. Most peoples of all nations want out, but either the promises or the investment is too high.

The north can pay for a while, the center with Germany as the main goal can absorb lots of damage. This union can not hold when people like Gurdun Shyman gets into office.

Hopefully it fails before we have invested more into it.

As a female I do not want want my job only because i am non-male.
