Remember that pesky anti-trust suit that Apple faced over fixing eBook prices with publishers? Well if not, let me remind you. When Apple brought their eBook store to iOS they knew they were facing an uphill battle against Amazon. To counter this they worked out a deal with several publishers to fix prices at a certain level and also to guarantee that they got the best prices along with a few exclusive books. They were found guilty of this and are supposed to be making amends for it along with having a watchdog looking over their shoulders.
According to the Financial Times, Apple is reportedly negotiating the takeover of the company Beats Electronics for $ 3.2 billion. Apparently, the agreement on the takeover could be announced as early as next week, but companies still have not agreed on all the details, so the deal may not happen.
