This Business Insider article has to be a joke right?

    Apple to buy Beats Audio.

    This part in particular caught my eye

    Cook wanted to launch the service in September, with the iPhone 6, but now with Scott Forstall gone, Apple software development is still in disarray, and this timetable is impossible, so the launch will come in the new year, right after Christmas, before the Super Bowl, when Cook is scheduled to appear on the Howard Stern show to introduce the product.

    That's right, Stern now has more impact than football, and as a lover of Apple products he's willing to host Cook for free. Furthermore, with endless reruns on both Howard 100 and Howard 101, the message will continue to get out. And, the interview will stream free on iTunes Radio, so you won't need a satellite subscription to hear it.

    Whole article link is below. Sorry for any errors. Posting from my phone.

    Well Cook is gay and the Wig is flaming so there's bound to be a lot of cock talk from Howchie if this ever happens.

    It'll be so completely different than all his other interviews. If he wants to be really controversial he'll ask him how much money he makes running apple.

    Just an FYI about business Insider.
    It's a website owned and operated by Henry Blodget.

    Elliot Spitzer exposed Henry Blodget when Spitzer went after Merrill-Lynch.
    Blodget was the King of "Pump and Dump'.
    Elliot Spitzer's investigation ultimately resulted in a multimillion dollar fine and a lifetime ban from the Financial Securities Market for Blodget.

    Take ANYTHING from that website with a BIG grain of salt.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Blodget

    Three's a nice expose of Henry Blodget in the documentary about Spitzer, Client 9.

    My guess is the deal happens but the Stern angle is complete bullshit. No way the CEO of the most valuable tech company in the world goes on that shit show. They might bring Ralph in to lishp about how "in" Beats headphones are but that's about it.

    Did anyone else happen to see the whole Lefsetz article was AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE part?????
    So while there is some accurate parts of Lefsetz piece, the majority of it was out of his imagination. No nobody got that. Or the part where it's dated April 1. It's in the friggin headline.
    Also Lefsetz is annoying as hell. He believes everything Stern says. If Howard said he had 100 million listeners I think Bob would quote it like it's a fact.

    The Business Insider story was just linking how Lefsetz made a joke piece about Apple buying Beats that just became true.

    Not that it matters but BI changed their tune after a THEY realized it was an April Fools joke. Their original article took him seriously and they admit as much but then quickly updated the article and scrubbed the whole Stern angle.

    What's even more comical is that about 6 months ago Howard stopped mentioning&promoting Lefsetz's articles because he trashed Howard. But as always not only did Wiggy not address that I believe he started promoting Lefsetz's again in the hopes he wouldn't trash him again.
