It may seem hard to believe, but the last major update to NoteBook for Mac was all the way back in 2009 — more than a year before the first-generation iPad made the dream of a truly mobile digital notebook a reality. OS X still has the upper hand, however, especially after the more than 100 new features and improvements introduced in version 4.0.

The user interface for the iPhone has worked so well for Apple over the past few years that it's changed comparatively little (all things considered), but Apple's reveal of the bubbly UI for the Apple Watch points to the possibility of a different aesthetic. Taking his cue from a 9to5Mac article that toyed with the idea of a Apple Watch-styled interface for the iPhone, YouTuber Lucas Menge went out and created one and shared the results in a video.
As you might recall from today's Morning Report, word got around this weekend that both Rite-Aid and CVS had dropped Apple Pay only a few days after they started supporting the service in favor of the merchant-friendly but cumbersome CurrentC service. This afternoon, Apple released a statement in response to the news expressing optimism despite the loss of two powerful retailers.

Judging from our Twitter feed, all anyone wanted to talk about this weekend was how drugstore chains CVS and Rite Aid have gone out of their way to prevent iPhone 6 owners from making purchases with their new handsets — and there may be a very good reason for this, as outlined in our Monday Morning Report.

It's well known that Apple was a little late to the streaming music party, and thus its fantastically expensive acquisition of Beats Music and Beats Electronics makes sense for a company looking to get ahead in the business. It'll need it, too. The Wall Street Journal reported today that traditional digital music sales on iTunes have dropped by 13 percent so far this year.
For consumers, at least, the news that the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 would support a SIM card that could freely be switched out among AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and EE in the United Kingdom seemed like a dream come true. Unfortunately, AT&T refuses to play along. Word surfaced at numerous sources today that anyone who connects their new iPad to an AT&T data plan will find their SIM cards locked to the carrier.
