The Biggest Companies show what $3.2B means to them

So rumors have been flying left and right about Apple purchasing Beats for $3.2B. Which I still can't understand why, but if it is true hopefully we will find out.

But guess who else purchased a company for $3.2B? Google...when the bought Nest. The crazy part here as this shows what the priorities are for each company good or bad. For Google it seems like it is Data and Information, for Apple Retail and Music.

Each of these priorities do have their pros and cons, but I do find it interesting on just the 180 degree thinking both of these companies have.
