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

Good idea/Bad idea: Apple opening up OS X betas to the public? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Wednesday Highlights: Apple to announce earnings this afternoon, and Forbes' Mark Rogowsky sums up what all the analysts are predicting: "Flat revenues, minimal earnings growth due only to share buybacks, a tiny uptick in iPhone sales offset by a downtick in iPad sales."; Chris Ciaccia hopes future plans get spelled out by Cook and team as Apple is being "squeezed for new breakthrough product as iPhone and iPad sales go flat"; more in our Apple/Macintosh, and Finances sections; meanwhile the Samsung vs. Apple saga continues into day 10 with the South Korean company gunning for Apple's FaceTime having purchased a patent covering its technology; and Google is apparently shouldering some of the money for Samsung in their fight against Apple; EE Times sees "tech talent war" starting once the no-poaching case between Apple, Google is resolved; Apple allowing public to sign up for beta testing OS X; smart move says Jonny Evans; Mac OS X Hints has a how-to for creating a Fusion Drive with a recovery partition; Fortune takes us on a tour of Apple's Amsterdam store; new TV ad hits the airwaves in which Apple calls up the Pixies; hack allows you to use AirPlay with Google Play Music; GottaBeMobile reviews the MacBook Pro Retina after 6 months of use; Matt Haughey recounts Steve Jobs' connection to rural Oregon; ZDNet review of Samsung's Galaxy S5, "solid...but could have been better"; and you remember Linux, right? Well Ars Technica reviews the latest Ubuntu, concluding it misses boat on big changes.
