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

Agree/Disagree: Apple apps such as iMessage should be legally opened up to other platforms like BlackBerry, Android? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Weekend Highlights: Philip Elmer-Dewitt at Fortune looks at Tim Cook, Apple, and the wealth distribution curve; Apple salary and compensation numbers reveal Tim Cook enjoys a $9.22 million take home in 2014, but as noted by CNNMoney, his "pay package was valued at $378 million when he became Apple's CEO", almost $57k was claimed for unused vacation time by the CEO, and $700k was spent on his personal security; Angela Ahrendts out-earned Cook with a 2014 salary package of $73.4 million; John Couch, VP of Education at Apple on "how Apple wants to remake the classroom"; reminder of Apple's Q1FY15 conference call coming up next Tuesday; Google, via Project Zero, has exposed three security flaws in OS X, reports in our OS X section; Macworld UK presents a head-to-head comparison between Yosemite and Windows 10; PC Magazine reviews cross-platform 1U password manager; Macworld tutorial on culling duplicates from your iPhoto library; Mac Gamer HQ lists 52 of the "most anticipated Mac games"; latest report from CIRP (2-page PDF) indicates strong quarter for Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in the US market; Apple to allow security audits of Apple products in China according to Chinese media, more in our General Interest section; new set of photos purportedly reveal sleek new 12" MacBook Air display assembly; review of the iPad Air 2 from Know Your Mobile which claims it is "the absolute best tablet money can buy", and iMore spent two months with the Air 2, this is their review; Jordan Golson at TechRepublic finds Apple's Health app disappointing; Apple Watch battery specs suggest 19 hours use per charge, but only 2.5-3 hours of heavy usage, will this be "a huge let down?"

This weekend's MacUpdate Promo saves 67% off the price of Responsive Layout Maker Basic for just $29.00. "Responsive Layout Maker Basic lets you prototype responsive designs and generate custom layouts. The adaptable layout is the core, and most challenging aspect, of any responsive website. And this makes Responsive Layout Maker a true game changer. It's the only app for visually developing bullet-proof, production ready, layout designs that adapt to any screen size or device."
