I’m likely to the last person to comment on this, but the rumor that Apple purchasing Universal has been bugging me all flippin’ day. While I’m very enthuasiastic about a potential Apple music service that makes sense (reasonably priced, easy to use), I do not see the logic behind buying a large music company (loaded w/ debt).
It appears the logic goes something like this:
A) We make very good TVs that make us a lot of money
B) We should start producing SitComs
There is a large significant difference between being a “digital media technology company” and being a “digital media” company. I can’t see how mixing such drastically different business models can be a good thing when the economy remains in a “wait and see” state.
