I skimmed this thread from the start but only realized just now that it's an old thread. Pretty fascinating.
Imagine if Beats was made 'correctly' during that time, just imagine.
That is pretty fascinating if you think about it, lol. One thing's for sure though—Beats will never be done right until Dr. Dre assumes full command and Jimmy Iovine backs off. For me, it's Jimmy that made the Beats sound the way it is and look the way it is, so he needs to step down.
