Beats Gets Special Section In Apple's Online Store, But Where's Beats Music?

image from store.storeimages.cdn-apple.comIt's been less than a week since Apple has finalized their $3 billion buy of Beats and Beats Music, but the mac maker is wasting no time bringing its purchase into the famous Apple ecosystem.  A special section of Apple's online store is now dedicated entirely to Beats:  headphones, earbuds. speakers, accessories and more - all presented in Apple's usual stark white graphic style. Missing, however, is any mention of Beats Music.
