Apple Buys Beats

For $2.6 billion in cash and $400 million in stock Apple acquired Beats Audio this week. It will be interesting to see what Apple does with Beats and to learn (hopefully) exactly why Beats was acquired.

Balmer Buy Clippers

For slightly less money ($2 billion) Steve Balmer is buying the Los Angeles Clippers NBA team. Good for him, I think all retired billionaires should buy a sports team (and give to charity).

See you next week!
