Apple time. Apple is about to hold its second product event in as many months, but this one is different. First, Apple’s October 30 event is in New York. Actually, to be more specific, in Brooklyn, which may be a first for the Cupertino tech giant. Second, instead of one standard invite, Apple sent out dozens of different designs (I got one), a signal that this event is about creativity and the tools you use to make art, architecture, films, music, and more. Naturally, the rumors about the event have already started to fly. New iPad Pros with new connectors and no home button is virtually a lock.

Collision Course. I don’t think Apple sets its calendar by other tech companies, so it’s probably unaware that the day it chose for its iPad event is the same day OnePlus planned to launch its eagerly anticipated OnePlus 6T Android phone. OnePlus shows no signs of moving its event, so they’ll just have to hope that Apple doesn’t, as it often does, suck all the air out of the room.

Wall Street robot. Robots are everywhere, often in places (like your car’s anti-lock brakes) that you don’t even notice. But it was hard to miss the sight of a robot arm ringing the New York Stock Exchange Closing Bell on Wednesday. Why and how? I’ve got you covered.

A cheaper Tesla. The Tesla Model 3 all electrics sedan was supposed to the Tesla for everyone, but it still cost $54,000 (before government rebates). Now the company has introduced a rear-wheel-drive, mid-range model (it tops out at 260 miles per charge) that starts at $45,000. It could cost as little as $35,000 after federal and local rebates. But don’t count on that since government rebates on electric cars are about to expire. Still, the news is the first thing to buoy Tesla stock prices in quite a while. I’ll have more to say on this on an upcoming 33 Million Miles to Mars podcast.
