Just as you won't find any copies of Windows 8.1 or Surface Pro 3 tablets being sold in any Apple Store locations -- Apple and Microsoft are rivals, after all -- the Cupertino outfit is no longer carrying Bose products, either. Like Microsoft, Bose is now a competitor to Apple following the company's $3 billion... Read more...
Well now, that was fast -- rather than let their legal beagles bark at each other in court, Apple and Bose came to terms on a settlement agreement that puts to rest the latter's clam that the former is infringing on proprietary patents that mostly involve noise noise cancelling technology.

It looks like Apple's first order-of-business following its $3 billion Beats acquisition will be to tell about 200 people to, ahem, beat it.

Apple found itself a willing dance partner in Beats, the audio company it agreed to acquire for $3 billion back in May, its biggest acquisition ever.

LeBron James is on top of the world. As you're reading this, he's preparing to play Game 4 in the NBA Finals, the world's largest stage for basketball. He's paid well -- extremely well -- to go out there and put a ball through a hoop, but it's his endorsements and investments that bring in the serious money. For... Read more...
We’ve been getting used to billion-dollar-plus acquisitions lately, and thus a rumor that Google is in talks to buy streaming music service Songza for just $15 million doesn’t quite make ones eyes pop, but it’s still noteworthy that the search giant is working to enhance its product offerings.

First things first: Apple’s Beats acquisition is happening, and Apple has confirmed it. The deal is for $2.6 billion in cash and $400 million in stocks, and--perhaps more notably--it will bring Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre to Apple. And that last bit, it seems, was and is the key to the whole... Read more...
Dr. Dre and everyone else at Beats Electronics certainly seem anxious to close a reported $3.2 billion merger with Apple -- and who could blamed him, as the deal would make him the richest person in hip-hop -- but the fact that it hasn't happened by now might be cause for concern.
