random thought - it was actually smart of them to put the speakers where they did (if they absolutely HAD to make the phone stereo) but still, a bunch of folks think they are both on the bottom for some reason.

i mean technically you don't have to plug anything into an iphone anymore with the contact spot charging

i got the 256GB X because i haven't given up on physical music libraries yet, so I still need to sync music with a lightning cable, i don't think itunes has the ability to wirelessly sync yet ?

They may. We don't know yet! I think Gruber's take on it makes sense:
The big question on many people’s minds are the keyboards: Do they resolve the reliability issues that have surfaced ever since Apple switched to butterfly mechanisms? Apple says no, that the only thing they were engineered for is being quieter. But I think only time will tell whether this is true or not. Maybe, as Apple says, the only problem they sought out to solve was the noise. But, if they also sought out to improve the reliability of the keyboards — to fix the problem where keys get stuck, among other problems — I think they would only admit to fixing the noise problem. Marketing-wise, I don’t think they would admit to a reliability problem in the existing butterfly keyboards (especially since they’re still selling second-generation keyboards in all non-TouchBar models), and legal-wise (given the fact that they’re facing multiple lawsuits regarding keyboard reliability) I don’t think they should admit to it. So whether they’ve attempted to address reliability problems along with the noise or not, I think they’d say the exact same thing today: only that they’ve made the keyboards quieter. I have no inside dope on the this (yet?), but to me the reason for optimism is that they’re calling these keyboards “third-generation”, not just a quieter version of the second-generation butterfly-switch keyboards.


Anyway, I haven't had any problems with my 2017 MBP keyboard. I don't particularly love it, though.

trying to decide on what model to get.

do any of you know whether the new 13" MBP would, uh, run DotA well? i'm mostly using this thing for writing, browsing, and some photo-editing, but I do like DotA and Civ.

I think it might struggle, but you could always get an eGPU for ~600. Generally, the 13" seems to work better with eGPUs than the 15"

I'm liking the iOS 12 beta a lot so far, just installed yesterday. My 7 feels a lot more responsive and less glitchy, which was getting worse and worse under 11.
