Podcast: It's New Stuff Week, and Apple's servers are about to get a workout

It's New Everything Week at Apple, with preorders beginning Friday for the Apple Watch. (Susie still isn't sure which one to get, but she's narrowed it down to three. OK, four.) Also launching this week is the new MacBook and its tiny USB-C port, which Glenn can't wait to test. Oh, and some movies on the iTunes Store, something about a war in the stars? Could be good.

We also take another chance to point and giggle at CurrentC (QR codes, seriously, those never cease to make us chuckle), and talk about whether the rumored new Apple TV needs 4K, or if our broadband can even handle that.
