Apple makes a tall router with multiple antennas. It's called the AirPort Extreme. Now Google is about to make a tall router called the OnHub with *thirteen* antennas, not to mention a speaker, a ring of LEDs, and ZigBee support. Speaking of companies making stuff outside their normal comfort zone, the Apple Car! It's possibly being tested! The Guardian uncovered some amazing email evidence, although they did get one little tidbit wrong—because they don't use Macs.

But our biggest discussion this week is content blockers, coming soon to iOS 9. Glenn is testing a few already (look for an article on Macworld soon), and it's great news for users like us—and possibly really scary news for content creators like us. Everything is about to change...yes, again. That's baseball.
