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.

In the most parts of the world, the average person simply can't afford them.

If they can't afford a smartphone that's not of the sub-$100, 4gb of storage variety, I'd imagine they couldn't afford a car either. So by that logic, cars are also not made for the average person.
