Right now, in our very own galaxy, a small band of freedom fighters are here to deliver the not-so-secret Apple news of the week.* Rene Ritchie, Georgia Dow, and Mikah Sargent give a sneak peek at Rene's awesome new Siri Shortcuts video, and they follow up on the alleged Chinese hack of Supermicro server hardware.

In addition, Google announced the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL this week. There are a couple good features Apple should consider "borrowing" for future iPhones.
