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

Agree/Disagree: Interest in Apple Watch is waning. Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Memorial Day Highlights: Today we remember those who died while in service to their country in the armed forces; Reuters reporting Apple's request for waiver of India's FDI rules is under discussion, while their proposal to sell refurbished iPhones has been officially squashed—reports in our Apple/Macintosh section; acquisition of VocalIQ gives a glimpse at Apple's plans to win the AI assistant war according to Ben Lovejoy; Business Insider report that the Apple developer community is largely yawning over the Apple Watch, but Jonny Evans calls the claim "BS"—more in our Apple/Macintosh and Op/Ed sections; Macworld tutorial on exporting Live Photos movies into OS X; forthcoming Siri upgrade said to "'wipe the floor' with competition"; Lance Ulanoff "made iMovie magic on the iPad Pro"; Jessica Van Sack at Boston Herald ponders the logic, or lack thereof in what Apple's release plans for iPhone 7 and 8.

Today's MacUpdate Promo offers 50% savings on Super PhotoCut for just $14.99. "Super PhotoCut is an interactive cutout tool which isolates and separates a detailed foreground object from its photographic background. With our proprietary best-in-class algorithm masking tool, you can instantly remove complex image backgrounds and make them transparent with just a few clicks."
