Mix in the upsell of the phablet iPhone to companion earphones and the table is set for the iWatch in both jewelry and TV editions. Iovine is more than an aquihire; he seems to understand that streaming and the supposed death of the album is an opportunity to reinvent the long form the Beatles pioneered all those years ago.
