    Default Beats CEO Jimmy Iovine in Discussion With Apple


    After only a few hours the Financial Times reported Apple was in discussion to acquire Beats Electronics, New York Post reported that Jimmy Iovine, Beats CEO, is in discussion to join Apple as a “special advisor” to Tim Cook on creative matters.

    Beats Electronics boss and veteran music industry executive Jimmy Iovine is in talks to join Apple as a “special adviser” to Tim Cook on creative matters, two sources close to talks tell The Post.

    Iovine is also the chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M music label of Universal Group and his contract expires at the end of 2014. Iovine had strong connections in the music industry, therefore Apple can leverage him for potential music label negotiations. This would make Iovine a strong addition even if the company does not successfully purchase Beats.

    If Iovine joins Apple, he would be the second high profile executive to join the company alongside Angela Ahrendts, Burberry CEO. Beats CEO has had history with Apple, having pitched Steve Jobs on a subscription music service.

    Hopefully Macs don't start coming with "beats inside". It is a joke and an artificial enhancement that uses a flat and a v-curve eq to boost the bass when beats is "turned on".

    No, he is just an endorsement/name on the box.
