What should Apple do with the Beats headphone line? [Poll]

What should Apple do with the Beats headphone line? [Poll]

The Apple/Beats deal might be official now but a lot of questions remain. Will Apple keep the Beats brand? What roles will Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre play as Apple executives? Will Beats under Apple continue to produce stylish, high-priced, bass-intesive, headphones? It's that last one I'm curious about right now... What should Apple do with Beats headphones?

Should they keep the headsets as-is, Beats-branded and bass-heavy? Should the consolidate them under the Apple-branded EarPods line? Should they toss out everything and make a new line of great, accurate-sounded headsets for the next generation? (With super bass-boost button if needed?). Or should Apple just get out of the headset business entirely and focus on devices and services?

With iBooks tied up by courts, Amazon runs roughshod over publishers

When the U.S. government sued Apple over its entry into the ebooks market there was a fear that the action would result in Amazon, who already enjoyed a dominant market position, increasing their power to potentially abusive levels. So, was that fear justified?

Your task this week is to use reflections to your advantage.

WebKit spools up FTL, seeks to make JavaScript even faster

WebKit, the open source rendering engine that powers Apple's Safari and is the basis of most mobile browsers today, is looking to once again escalate its level of JavaScript performance. Dubbed FTL — not "faster than light" but "fourth tier LLVM" — it's now spooled up and ready jump onto OS X and iOS. Filip Pizlo expounds in glorious, deeply nerdy fashion on the Surfing Safari blog:
