It would be an odd move by Apple. Apart from improving brand image (which I don't think will do much) what does Twitch do for Apple? Possibly music sales but the main focus is something Apple is in (gaming).

Apple is not just a hardware company, they sell music, movies, apps, broadcasting, and they sell ads with iAds. I think the point is not that this is good for us, but good for Apple.

Do people use their brains when they write any more? This is so far from what Apple actually does.

I'm also a little surprised that Amazon actually picked this up, but I guess them trying to get into the gaming industry may be part of this.
