I completely spaced on writing this earlier tonight, so this post comes to you early Monday morning instead of in my usual Sunday afternoon/evening timeframe.
10/28/2014: Why Some Stores Won’t Take Apple Pay, and How to Punish Them, Yahoo Tech
Did I mention all the clueless anti-Apple rage directed at this post covering the blocking of NFC mobile payments at CVS and Rite Aid? Yes, I did. I’m still shaking my head about all that. I mean, it’s quite the stretch to say that a story illustrated with a photo of my own Android phone is all about Apple; my own brain is incapable of such gymnastics.

I updated this guide to account for a round of changes in Verizon’s pricing, some price cuts in some of AT&T’s shared-use plans and a few other shifts in the industry.
11/2/2014: Yosemite tips: Turn off translucency, tune up notifications, USA Today

Updated 11/5/14 to add the Wirecutter update that I had missed earlier.
