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

Plausible that Apple could be obsolete in 3 years? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Friday Highlights: Analyst Sramana Mitra enjoys how Tim Cook is putting his own "stamp on Apple" that is "quite different from the company that Steve Jobs ran"; and Chris Maxcer at TechNewsWorld is a bit flummoxed by Cook's calling IBM a "kindred spirit" to Apple; Quentin Fottrell quotes Morningstar analyst who believes the days of a $300 billion device are over, that Apple will not have another blockbuster like iPhone anytime soon; Denise Cote, the controversial judge who presided over Apple's antitrust ebook suit, "is troubled" with "clause requiring Apple to pay only $70 million if an appeals court reversed her finding"—more in our Apple/Macintosh section; and after a TV report in China, one Chinese iPhone user files lawsuit against Apple for privacy invasion; OS X Yosemite beta went live on Thursday, and if you are experiencing bugs, MacIssues has some help, TG Daily on how you can download the beta, Macworld lists 13 things you want to know about the beta, and hit our OS X section on yesterday's page for more; MacTrast tackles "how to move your iTunes library to an external drive"; analyst saying Apple investment in things like product development is an indication of coming revenue explosion; ZDNet's Violet Blue commemorates "the Apple backdoor that wasn't", i.e., the big news earlier in the week that Apple intentionally left backdoors in iOS; don't watch this video if you're squeamish seeing iPhone 5s getting run over by train; Intel prepping a Core M chip slated for notebooks and tablets; Macworld has an article to help you decide which Mac fits your needs.
