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.

Yes, but you understand you don't watch chess for the action, right, just the same with curling, which is my point. I'm not saying you have to like cricket. I'm saying it's strange how you would like one boring sport because of its chess like qualities, but not another boring sport for the exact same reason.
