One of the most amazing and remarkable characteristic of Macs and iPhones is the quality of its sound especially on the laptops and desktops where you can really distinquish quality and value for money. They normally outsource their speakers to third party companies like Harmon and Kardon, and also with a lot of external devices that will boost your sound output and even consolidated them into charging docks.
Now, after almost 3 months after Apple announced its intent to buy Beats Electronics, the Cupertino firm has posted a message on its website that officially welcomes the headphone and speaker company to Apple. The negotiation on the table was at US$3 Billion US Dollars.
“Welcome to the family” was posted on the Apple page website that welcomes Beats Electronics and Beats Music to Apple’s team. Apple revolutionized and coined the term “DIGITAL LIFESTYLE” way back in 2000 when they started to produce iBooks in White and introduced a new line of FREE software that come with every Mac. My personal opinion is, there are going to do something more than just iPods with great sound quality, but would really like to close-in to the manufacturer’s floor equipments and technology of their own.
Beats has updated its own website with a statement on the move that Apple’s products have had a major impact on the world of music and that Apple and Beats will “reimagine sound once again.” Beats also notes that all of its online sales will now be routed through Apple’s own online shop.
While Apple’s acquisition of Beats was announced at the tail end of May, the deal still needs to be approved by various regulatory bodies before it can be completed. Neither Apple nor Beats have put out an official statement to confirm that the transaction is now done, but these messages on the Apple and Beats website certainly seem to suggest that that may be the case. Stay tuned and I’ll update you if you if either firm issues a confirmation.
What is Cooke-ing do new fruits that bear Beats and Apple? Surely there will be some integration between the two leaders in Technology.
