Confused? We say it's better to temper expectations and be patient anyway...

There's still no confirmation a deal between Apple and Beats Electronics is taking place, but that saga took another interesting turn late last week. According to The Wrap, the founder of the MOG online subscription-based music service that ultimately became Beats Music is suing co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, claiming he was fired before he could receive benefits from an incentive plan.
