$500 million for Beats Music, $2.5 billion for Beats Electronics

Apple Inc. is paying slightly less than $500 million for the Beats Music streaming service, and more than $2.5 billion for Beats Electronics in its $3 billion deal, according to people familiar with the matter.

Always a bit sceptic of "people familiar with the matter" if only one sixth of what Apple paid for Beats is for Beats Music, the streaming service is probably not what they wanted the most don't you think? Because if that was it, why not just buy Beats Music?
