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

Like it/Don't like it: Apple's surprise 7-to-1 stock split announcement. Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Thursday Highlights: Apple earnings combined with a surprise 7-to-1 stock split which will return $130 billion to investors, defy skeptics, boost stock and perhaps signal the company has "got its mojo back"; Reuters thinks the news has reset "the clock as investors await next big thing", which Tim Cook says is closer than ever, but Apple will "take the time to get it right" as opposed to being first to market—reports aplenty throughout the page in content-appropriate sections; writers pay attention, Kirk McElhearn reviews what he considers "the best focused-writing apps for OS X"; Tuts+ explores using text effects in Microsoft Word; AddictiveTips reviews MemoryDiag and sibling app, Battery Diag, for OS X system monitoring; Re/code reviews calendar app "Magneto"; 512 Pixels explores Apples past, present, future use of the Aqua UI; Apple bests Samsung by four points to win J.D. Power's 2014 smartphone satisfaction survey; Apple seeing a "sales boom in communist Vietnam"; rumor suggests we'll see a new MacBook Air next week, both 11 and 13-inch sizes; and the iPhone phablet said to be delayed because it is too thin for current battery technology; Apple applies for tech that allows interaction with 3D objects in mid-air, embedded authentication systems, environmental sensors, among others down in our Hardware/Software section; Macworld connects 36 drives to a Mac Pro, reviews results; Opera Coast iOS browser reviews at Time, and AppleInsider.
