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

Your experience with Yosemite has been: Fine, no major issues; Ok, but some problems; Headache, regret upgrading? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Tuesday Highlights: Apple's earnings being cheered by Wall Street analysts, but Barbara Kollmeyer wonders if "Apple's stock price [is] nearing its peak"; Jay Yarow at Business Insider calls the iPhone "a miracle", MacDailyNews disagrees, says "it's perfectly explainable"; either way you slice it, the latest iPhone 6 models have made a strong debut, while iPad sales have slowed; Tim Cook explains iPad decline, as well as the tablet's bright future; iCloud hack blamed on China, country denies involvement; OS X Yosemite experiences from readers at MacInTouch; Macworld offers a bottom-line suggestion as to whether or not you should upgrade to the new OS X; eXtensions reviews Desktop & Screensaver changes in Yosemite; iMore calculates "price of progress" with Handoff, Continuity in Yosemite; CNET points to new report calling the Apple Watch the "most exciting wearable on the horizon"; Apple Pay officially in the retail wild today, 9to5Mac lists where you can use it, Mashable, the AP, and AppleInsider review the new service; Digital Photography Review takes iPhone 6 Plus camera for an extensive test/review; iFixit has a teardown of the new Mac mini, and rob-ART Morgan, the "Mad Scientist" at Bare Feats posts his preliminary performance analysis of the new Retina iMac; PC Magazine article opines on why the new iMac matters...and why it doesn't.
