There's the Internet of Things (and why EULAs suck for them. I wrote about that at Working with our pal Dave Winer on a river of news for the NYTimes: Apple finished buying Beats, which to me is proof that Steve is dead: - Doc
Tony Faddel (Nest CEO, co-creator of the iPod/Pad/Phone at Apple) shit on the Internet of Things in a talk with Mossberg: But the real story there (if you watch the talk , which I can't find) is that he's keeping Nest independent from Google, and not using your Thermostat as Google narc-ware in your home. - Doc

Spell checker here for Scoble says no correction available - Ian Waring from Android
Overheard from Steve: "Pull it out of the wall!" Makes me wonder about the antecedent of "it." - Doc
@Matthew - yep a friendly - Keith Teare

some of us can, others are ignoring it - Jerome Hughes
Like pulling your head out Doc? - Francine Hardaway from Android
30 secs and we'll have Scoble back - Tina Chase Gillmor
I watched a few minutes of Silicon Valley and thought it was so far off that I gave up. But that's a few more minutes than I give any TV show. - Doc

compared to spotifies 10 million - Matthew Voshell
I have the good headphones and they're not good either - Francine Hardaway from Android
I might be way out of line but I think that Jimmy Iovine's temperament is very similar to Steve Jobs'. His opinions might be limited to music and music-related electronics for now but who knows how far he'll go. - Alex de Soto
@Alex not a horrible analogy - Matthew Voshell
My theory is that Beats is Apples new Xioami type youth brand - like Scion to Toyota - Ian Waring from Android
music licensing..iovine is deep and gives them the channel to negoiaite with the labels - Matthew Voshell
Because it was not on Jobs' roadmap - Francine Hardaway from Android
Xioami killing Samsung in China. Apple aiming Beats at same youth demographic - Ian Waring from Android
Chris Hale - Alexia will be back soon. Thanks for asking - Tina Chase Gillmor
apple makes its biggest margins on dinkery: e.g. the white earbuds I'm wearing now. - Doc
Is it just me, or is Apple innovating less these days? - Anne Saulovich
Never used the mobile earphones. There's so much better alternatives out there. - Nir Ben Yona
iOS n, n=year-6 - Carlos Cruz
Don't think they will be letting Dr Dre see any of their forthcoming new products, cause he only make a bragging video - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Didn't HP or someoene market themselves as having beats audio built in... and it did nothing for the brand... there was a smartphone too , HTC i think.. - Matthew Voshell
Maybe Beats will not be just an accessory ... could be the start of something revolutionary with audio inputs to produce actions on the phone we've never even thought of? - Amyloo
Apple were going to telcos asking for £100 extra cost for next handset. Maybe headset included? - Ian Waring from Android
iBeats line takes on Sonos? - Tom Guarriello
Beats fits to the roaming household experience that will be unfolding - Arnie Klaus

Tool ubiquity of places and cultures (generations) - Arnie Klaus
yeah, I almost wrote "bedroom" Moe - Tina Chase Gillmor
He talking Gaga now - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Cool to hear Tina. She was particularly insightful IMHO - Chris Hale
The best theory I've heard is that this aquisition was actually about buying Beats streaming royalty deal that would have been better than was Apple could have negotiated. - Anne Saulovich
Arnie and Amyloo I agree - Francine Hardaway from Android
Record companies will probably end up exactly like Blockbuster. - Nir Ben Yona
sometimes it's all about timing? - Tina Chase Gillmor
@anne.. i agree... Jimmy gives them an insider in payroll to help negotiate for cheaper and more content - Matthew Voshell

olive branched? - Jerome Hughes
Anne - usually deals do not survive change of ownership - Keith Teare
Microsoft's Theme Song - Moe Glitz from iPhone
@matthew yup i haven't come across anything else that makes more sense. - Anne Saulovich
They can sell all those IOT devices in their stores - Francine Hardaway from Android
Apple thinks that music is part of their "DNA." They'll figure out how to distribute a "river of music" (as Doc says) and make artists some money on the way to making the labels eventually "disintermediated." - Alex de Soto
Hope Apple doesn't get into anything like coffee, though ... - Amyloo
Elon Musk and the landable spaceship with 3d printer rocket engines - Arnie Klaus

My first concert: Sonny & Cher. True - Tina Chase Gillmor
...and The Beat Goes On - Tina Chase Gillmor

Mobile Sonos... - Tom Guarriello
yes - Doc
All the equipment and software will become background to voice control and the audio visual expereince. The toggles and equipment will vanish behind the media experience.. - Arnie Klaus

Microsoft anthem is by Gerry Rafferty - get it right next time - Ian Waring from Android
Google driverless cars - Moe Glitz from iPhone

I thought they'd buy sonos a while ago. Might still - Doc
They probably are confused by why RedBull sells $2 billion a year of the shittiest product I can think of. - Robert Scoble
Car tie-in sounds fitting and plasible. - Amyloo
@keith From the engadget piece. Still best argument I've heard: "The same site that leaked Beats' subscriber figures also points to another interesting figure -- the low amount of royalties that Beats pays to songwriters (approximately $0.000126 per play). Beats has previously stated that its strategy is to make sure content owners get a good deal and to work with them more closely than other services. So, in many cases that content owner could well be the songwriter. But, this is, perhaps, a good indicator of where the purchase of Beats Music offers its best return, and where Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine's reported industry sway could really pay off." - Anne Saulovich
I do the same thing as Ella - Francine Hardaway from Android
itunes is a hideous store. - Doc
I'd look for Apple to announce a reboot of iTunes at WWDC. It's overdue. - Doc
Sonos + Spotify - Tom Guarriello
As a Beats Music subscriber... and former iTunes Match user.... iTunes match would take FOREVER to buffer... Beats Music is almost instant... idk what algorithm they use but it's noticeably faster. - Matthew Voshell
yes, maybe a serious iTunes revamp. I've never really warmed up to it - Tina Chase Gillmor

iHeartRadio is that though isnt it? - Matthew Voshell

I have been at Mercedes' R&D lab. - Robert Scoble
Isn't that google wallet though... ? and how much penetration has that had? - Matthew Voshell
The banking system does need disruption - Francine Hardaway from Android
If Microsoft wants to keep Xbox alive as a Media Player they should buy Spotify - Moe Glitz from iPhone
The cars are ideal for natural language interfaces like Siri - Carlos Cruz
Just seeing Oculus announced with Samsung - Ian Waring from Android
Could a phone interface with stuff like car anti-collision tech? - Amyloo
agreed but i have issues with basic stuff with siri - Chris Hale
it gets frustrating really fast - Chris Hale
Agree. Tom. They could pick up Sirius for a song, so to speak. - Doc
The banking system is corrupt - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Engadget reports Samsung (SSNLF) is partnering with Oculus VR (FB) to build a mobile/media-focused VR headset. - Ian Waring from Android

Google needs Jay-Z and P.Diddy now. - Nir Ben Yona
Tina - sorry my fault. some kind of a glitch - Keith Teare
YouTube does music - Ian Waring from Android
if Google got Jay Z that would be awesome sauce - Chris Hale
Robert is right. Iovine said that Beats hardly spent money on advertising at first, relying on product placement in music videos to sell, sell, sell. - Alex de Soto
Hip Hop is dead that's why Dre went into Hardware - Moe Glitz from iPhone
They're bringing in price premiums in product classes that are commoditizing. - Chien-Yu Lin
not sure why Farber's screen dims a lot. Maybe a timing issue with his setup - Tina Chase Gillmor
Farber has the same problem I do: sun on a background window that keeps going behind clouds. - Doc
Bono was a Steve Jobs selected brand builder - Arnie Klaus
Beyer Dynamic and Sennheiser are two of the best. - Nir Ben Yona
Purchasing and selection is a satificing exercise. - Chien-Yu Lin

That's why the Brand that has the cool factor around it, always wins - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Buyers Remorse - Ian Waring from Android
This website is devoted to "head-fi" - Alex de Soto
Relevant: Google is corpora non grata in Europe: seen as radioactive around privacy, which Europeans take very seriously. See what the VW CEO said a couple days ago. - Doc
Every Apple commercial focuses on music. It is the gateway product for the Apple experience. - Chien-Yu Lin
Huge opportunity for Apple to come in and say, "Partner with us. We'll take care of privacy. We are not in the ad business." - Doc
I love this chat. just sayin' - Tina Chase Gillmor
Apple profits from Beats prophets helping people spend time rather than save time. - clive boulton

Streaming is just the music manifestation of the sharing / usage economy. It asks the most fundamental question: What is more important?: Use or Ownership? - Chien-Yu Lin
Germany ain't Europe! - Ian Waring from Android
I think doc has some good points. - Chris Hale
I liked the term radioactive - Chris Hale
Google does not have a high end brand - Francine Hardaway from Android
At least Google isn't defacing El Capitan with a big X like this: - Frank Paynter
Sorry Ian - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Everybody is collecting data. Google just looks like it is doing it more blatantly and thus, is mistrusted. - Chien-Yu Lin
Moves is inaccurate by 2000 steps - Francine Hardaway from Android
Don't be evil... - Carlos Cruz
Don't get caught being evil ... - Chien-Yu Lin
eh! eh! - Carlos Cruz
Germany! - Ian Waring from Android
The challenge with German car makers is that they have a very disciplined product roadmap. BMW is known for 7 year product launches. Does Apple have the patience and commitment to work with someone for 7 years without seeing Dollar One? - Chien-Yu Lin
That 25 years thing was a pretty dramatic statement. Mossberg came out of his chair on that one - Tom Guarriello
Liquid Metal everywhere - Ian Waring from Android
Thanks Frank. - Carlos Cruz
Detente between CRM and MSFT signals evolution of apps to remixing the enterprise? - clive boulton
Thanks, Frank! - Doc
All it means that all of the latest product upgrades are good plus they have the iWatch on board - Moe Glitz from iPhone

Most car makers have very long road maps. Hence Car play based on QNX - Ian Waring from Android
Cue hyperbole? - Alex de Soto
Cue the Music - Moe Glitz from iPhone
The same guy who designed QNX designed the iPod at Apple. So there are commonalities there. - Robert Scoble

The only place these guys see each other is in the Gang - Francine Hardaway from Android

Apple home automation, I health, etc - Ian Waring from Android
+1 on the PACman comment - Frank Paynter
there was a rumor about apple home automation - Chris Hale
but i heard it was just some sort of certification platform - Chris Hale
IPhone is the hub - Ian Waring from Android
First four, five iPhone launches during the summer. Now, many delays, launching phone past start of school year. Wondering if this is deliberate? Students spend money (forgiveness) rather than shop with parents (permission). Probably more spend per purchase. - Chien-Yu Lin
The iPhone made the Apple brand popular among non-geeks. This opened the door to the rest of people's lives. - Tom Guarriello
TV. Facebook wants to know what you're watching and listening to. Google wants your in-house behavior data with Nest, etc. - Nir Ben Yona

thinking back to meetings about that on minicomputer platforms in the 90s - Jerome Hughes
Get of my Cloud - Moe Glitz from iPhone
The devices will become background utility to the experience. The devices will dissapper into the landscape an as vanity wearables. - Arnie Klaus

Will app services drive Détente - clive boulton
I can see a special Gillmor Gang on Monday - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Responsive to tactile, audio, visual - Arnie Klaus
was thinking that yesterday, Moe - Jerome Hughes
Any chance something will appear that's totally disruptive, a new revolutionary direction like the Web in 1990 will take off... like Named-Data Networking?? - Frank Paynter
Television will be two things: (1) Content (which is the TV); and (2) Commerce (which will be about interactive television where certain products, services that will be "highlighted" where you will be able to run, beam, mouse across the product and either basket or purchase right then - assuming you have a digital wallet on TV file. - Chien-Yu Lin
Content: another question about "usage vs. ownership". - Chien-Yu Lin
stream blip - Tina Chase Gillmor
