"Dismal failure", "worse than spam" just a couple sentiments on Apple + U2 album tie up. Agree or disagree Apple blew it with the U2 album stunt? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Tuesday Highlights: Former Apple exec, Jean-Louis Gassée, admits he was wrong about Apple's watch, he now sees it as "a bold attempt to create a new kind of wrist-worn personal computer that looks like a smartwatch"; banks appear to be battling it out as to who will gain advantage as "consumers' default choice" for new pay service; many are sounding off in our poll about whether or not Apple and U2's album giveaway was "devious" and a "debacle" — additional reporting down in our Op/Ed section; IT Pro reviews Parallels Desktop 10, while MacNN takes the new Autodesk Smoke for a ride; 9to5Mac scoops internal data revealing Apple gameplan for iPhone 6/6 Plus launch in Apple Stores; iPhone 6 models said delayed in China, not to be released until 2015, causing AAPL drop despite upside, and one analyst's claim that it is "no big deal"; PayPal afraid of Apple Pay? Company hits Apple's new service as about as safe as peoples' selfies on iCloud; iLounge reviews iOS 8, and Macdrifter, Amsys go over what you need to do to prepare your iDevice for the new OS; Mashable's Todd Wasserman has a "sober look at Apple Pay"; would Apple be wise to let iWatch battery life dictate release?
