Apple sniff around Beats

Beats headphones - the universal signal to shopkeepers that someone easily separated from their money has entered their store - are about to be bought out by Apple.

It's unclear if they're interested in the streaming or the headphone part of the business.

UPDATE: Rory Cellan-Jones is currently on Today suggesting they're interested in the streaming bit of Beats. That makes the three billion price tag seem expensive; unless there's a motivation to acquire a more solid Android user base.
