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

Agree/Disagree: Apple should create original programming for Apple TV. Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Wednesday Highlights: The rumors are a'flyin' with what Apple will unveil next week, starting with the Apple TV which John Paczkowski at BuzzFeed hears "will feature universal search, start at $149"; but original programming is an unknown as Apple has unsuccessfully tried to score big names like Bill Simmons; now 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman has sources claiming the new Apple TV will feature a new black remote, the A8 chip, while we'll also see new bands for Apple Watch, and definitely see 16GB base model iPhones; DigiTimes report that we might even see glass-on-glass iPhones in 2016, maybe bezel-free iPhones?; Android bubble bursting as Europeans prefer iPhones; Xiaomi pondering MacBook competitor; TechRepublic has tips to fix battery drain issues on your iDevices.

Today's MacUpdate Promo offers 50% off PhotoScissors for only $9.99. "PhotoScissors is easy background removal with minimum efforts!"
