TALKING POINTS: Typically the opposite of forthcoming, Apple yesterday granted access to Ben Sisario of The New York Times for a half-hour a joint interview with Tim Cook, Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre at the company’s Cupertino HQ. “We looked at the combination with Beats, and what we saw is a company that has incredible, rare talent,” Cook explained. “You go into any recording studio in the world and you see candles, lights and that Apple light from a Mac,” Iovine said. “Apple is a company that understands music.
