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

Agree/Disagree: Apple should acquire IBM. Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Tuesday Highlights: Controversy surrounding Apple's forthcoming Beats/iTunes streaming service gunning to kill free streaming (read: Spotify) prompts an analysis from Business Insider's James Cook on why Apple is taking this track; Jonny Evans comments that "curation is critical to this plan" as Apple "wants to pay for talent"; Angela Ahrendts proudly "top-paid U.S. woman" with an $83 million yearly compensation according to Bloomberg's Pay Index; MacIssues tackles crashing issues in OS X when you open a particular folder; Peter Cohen's best practices for OS X Server, Time Machine; Molly Watt, a blind and deaf woman has an Apple Watch and it has changed her life for the better; Home Depot pulls Apple Pay from stores after having quietly allowed it; DigiTimes report says Apple and Samsung are the industry drivers for emdedded touch in handset displays; if rumor is true, the next Apple TV remote may be a touchpad—reports in our Hardware/Software section where Apple's latest patent grants feature a "'particle cloud' pairing method", interactive 3D map views, among others; Fortune's Jason Cipriani reviews the Apple Watch, finds it "worth the cost despite app imperfections"; Walt Mossberg reviews PopSlate case for iPhone which adds a second screen; Gus Lubin reviews Apple Pay, will always use it if he can because it's "a joy to use"; at The Verge, Vlad Savov ponders differing visions of the future from Apple, Microsoft where "one wants the device at the center of your life, the other wants to make the device irrelevant".

Today's MacUpdate Promo saves 43% off the price of Little Snitch for just $19.99. "Little Snitch gives you control over your private outgoing data....Choose to allow or deny connections, or define a rule how to handle similar, future connection attempts. Little Snitch runs inconspicuously in the background and it can even detect network-related activity of viruses, trojans, and other malware."
