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

What say you! Is $100 more a fair price to pay for a 32GB iPhone over a 16GB model when it costs Apple maybe $8? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Wednesday Highlights: Is Apple quietly working on enabling "powerful contextual services for its customers"? Jonny Evans thinks so, suggesting "it's precisely this kind of stealthy operational efficiency you should expect from Tim Cook's Apple [as] it seeks new growth sectors"; Don Reisinger argues there are no downsides "to a partnership between IBM and Apple", that consumers, the enterprise, everyone will benefit; IDC statistics show "home-grown" smartphone makers are gaining ground on Apple and Samsung; Ford dumping BlackBerry phones for iPhones, about 6,000 of them over the next two years; Russia asking Apple and SAP to provide "government access to their source code to make sure their widely used products are not tools for spying on state institutions"; Macworld UK comparative review of Apple's Aperture vs. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom; and Macworld US reviews Adobe's flagship video product, Premiere Pro CC 2014; what to do if you want to burn your movies to disc "in an iDVD-less world"; Forbes posts list of brands consumers find most innovative with Apple as number 1; Apple apparently confirms acquisition of Swell; Apple's back-to-school tax-free holiday sales coming!; The Next Web looks at "the houses that tech built", including Apple's spaceship campus, Steve Jobs' abandoned mansion; likely unintentional leak on Apple site suggests a mid-2014 27" iMac is imminent; Primate Labs benchmarks the latest MacBook Pros finding the 15" models enjoy a 6-9% increase, while the 13" models score a 7-8% increase over previous generation; ghost hunters, or folks needing thermal imaging, have a look at Macworld's first-look at the Flir One for iPhone; IT Pro lists their top 10 Word for iPad tips; and LAPTOP Mag laments the huge ripoff that is between buying a 16GB or 32GB phone, which costs consumers a $100 difference, but smartphone makers only pay around 50 cents/GB; is the "myth" of sapphire screens on iPhone 6 being busted? Perhaps to stave off overly-hyped expectations?
