So ol’ Beth like Lauryn Hill, does she?

I hope Beth go something cool out of Apple over this story, what with the company beamingly advertising what she bought and all.  Glad to see the merits of defending personal privacy online alive and well. ;)

It’s impressive, but not earth-shattering.

Apple is trying to keep its clout via marketing / PR news momentum.  Very smart.
