What Do People Think Of The Apple Inc.-Beats Music Saga?
TechCrunch on Monday reported the streaming service will be shut down and cited five different sources, "including several prominent employees at Apple and Beats."
The company has since denied the rumor.
So, beyond the obvious Apple fanaticism, what does social media think of this development?
Many thought it was a bit odd:
@joshconstine So weird that they just added it to Apple TV, right?
