Wednesday Highlights: Apple announces record sales for March quarter with revenue of $45.6 billion and $10.2 billion profit, also announced is a board-approved 7-for-1 stock split alongside a dividend increase; 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.

Her Internet connection is slow - it will take her 10+ days just to download Mavericks and then there are all the updates. So she asked me whether I can put Mavericks on a USB stick and send it to her (it will take about 6 weeks for the package to get to her village!). Besides Mavericks and the 10.9.2 update, I was just wondering if there is a list somewhere on of all the updates on top of 10.9.2 which I can also put on the USB stick, e.g. the SSL security update which came out today? Many thanks in advance for any advice!" MacInTouch 12:27 PM
