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.
Rene reviews the Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4 and explains why it's the aluminum Apple Watch to get — as long as you don't want the gold color option. 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.
Finally, the crew gaze into the crystal ball of iPad Pro rumors as they try to devine what capabilities it may include.
*No Bothans died to make this episode, but Lory "General Grevious" Gil lost her voice and had to sit this one out.
