Agree/Disagree: It is too early to call the Apple Watch a "stalled platform". Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Tuesday Highlights: Dan Frommer's 220-day review of the Apple Watch leaves him feeling "the limitations of what the first version of the watch can do", as if it is "a stalled platform"; however, holiday shoppers seem to like it so far, with an estimated $12 million in sales by end of year; and yet some issues owners have noted for giving up their watch are that it can be "limited, poor battery, lacks value"; Olga Harif at Bloomberg sees Apple going with money-losing person-to-person pay in order to increase Apple Pay adoption in stores; the London Evening Standard reporting £2,000 has been awarded to the retired man whose iPhone was wiped prior to his granting permission; CNNMoney talks with Eddy Cue about Apple's News app; developer of Sketch is leaving the Mac App Store because of poor customer experience; Dan Moren explains the point of "'Optimize Mac Storage' in Photos for Mac"; Jonny Evans looks at the Apple Watch and health insurance; G for Games hearing the iPhone 6c will feature colored metal casing; also rumor of USB-C only iPhone 7, something Evan Killham at Cult of Mac thinks is a stupid move, if true, but Graham Spencer at MacStories sees it as inevitable; Time tutorial on cleaning up a messy iPhone Photo library.

WEDNESDAY BLOWOUT: Every NEW or RENEWING paid subscriber receives 2 YEARS FREE.
