Weekend Highlights: China's official news agency, Xinhuanet, interviews Tim Cook who tells of China's importance to Apple, and that "Apple wants everything it develops to enter China market" — more in our Apple/Macintosh section; Apple Pay continues to be in the news as the service gets off the ground to a few glitches, Jan Dawson examines the service as it stands today, and where it is heading; Benzinga looks into whether Apple Pay is safe or not; Macworld has a primer on what to do if you experienced a post-Yosemite install disaster; The Mac Observer explains "handing off calls to your iPhone"; a couple features from Macworld on iTunes 12, including a Q&A with Kirk McElhearn on the new app; more Yosemite system prefs reviewed at eXtensions, Mission Control and Displays; Kraig Becker thinks Apple's productivity suite "should replace Microsoft Office for Mac users"; apparently knock-offs in China responsible for spam deluge impacting iMessage; Sprint ups the ante with a new plan to rent iPhone and upgrade every year; couple Japanese hobbyists hunker down and build a real, working Transformer; iPad mini 3 said to be "hastily glued" and difficult to repair; iPhone 6 Plus seeing app crashing issue?; Six Colors reviews the new Retina iMac, and Kirk McElhearn has one word on his first impressions: "Wow!"; BGR urging Apple to finally fess up and acknowledge display issues with certain MacBook Pro models.

This weekend's MacUpdate Promo saves 50% off the price of Cookie Stumbler for just $19.95. "Shimo is the swiss army knife for VPN connections. It supports more protocols than any other VPN application out there! CiscoVPN, AnyConnect, IPSec, OpenVPN, PPTP/L2TP, Nortel and even SSH connections are no problem for Shimo."
