Weekend Highlights: Monday Note's Jean-Louis Gasée has recanted some previous criticism of the iPad and now sees its future in the iPhone 6 Plus; CNET and other sites have begun to question whether Apple has gone overboard with 56 possible configurations of iPads; Full video of Jony Ive's Vanity Fair Interview posted online; Business Matters asks whether your Small Business should accept Apple Pay; Dan Frommer thinks the Apple SIM, "buried at the bottom of one of [Apple's] marketing pages" about iPad Air 2, could signal a legitimate disruption of the wireless industry; Forbes' Mark Rogowsky responds to articles lambasting Apple's new iPad offerings, reminding that "Apple doesn't control the universe"; not likely that we'll see touch-based Macs any time in the future according to Apple's own Craig Federighi; Apple reminds Q4 earnings call is on Monday afternoon; Yosemite is, so far, outpacing Mavericks by 67% in adoption; iTunes 12 arrived alongside the new OS sporting new user interface design, and more; Macworld offers a "complete guide" to Yosemite; LAPTOP Magazine has a primer for installing the new OS, MacStories covers changes to "extensibility and automation", Macworld on the new dictation commands and making/receiving iPhone calls on your Mac — plenty more in our OS X section.
