Apple

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.

Nope, my brain can't grok cricket. It goes on too long, and the action doesn't seem that thrilling to me.

I realize other people could say the same for baseball, but this isn't an objective truth, just a relative preference.
