Nice device, happy to know I can use it while scuba diving in boiling water.

falconeyes: Guetzli is named according to the #GoogleSwissMade series.
It is from the Lab Google Research Europe, located in Zürich, Switzerland and employs 2000 people, the largest Google lab outside the US. It is planned to be grown to 5000 people.

Just a little background info for the kind readers wondering about the name which is Schwizerdütsch actually.

Albeit smaller (350 people), the more famous US research lab in Zürich is IBM set up in 1956. It produced one Nobel price.

I'd really liked DPR staff to provide that kind of complementary info. It is easy enough to find ...

I see they are near Bahnhof Enge, short walk from where I lived on SternenStrasse. Nice neighborhood.

I'd buy it, but I'd want a mini machine gun up there too.

Screw the SD slot, I can deal with that. Someone needs to ask him about this dongle thing. We’ve got an adapter that gives you two Lightning ports, one to connect the iPhone 7 to the Mac, and one to connect the second dongle (Lighting-to-3.5mm audio) to the iPhone 7 so that you can listen to music at the same time.

A third is needed to make USB-A work with the MacBook Pro’s USB-C port. And then there’s a regular Lightning to USB cable that’s needed to connect dongles between the two devices. What were they thinking when they did this?

On article Apple revamps MacBook Pro lineup, adds 'Touch Bar' (866 comments in total)

Something to be aware of, the two ports on the right side of the 13 inch MBP with that Touch Bar thing have Thunderbolt 3 functionality but with reduced PCI Express bandwidth. For that reason, Apple recommends plugging higher-performance devices into the left-hand ports on that machine. 13 inch MBP without Touch Bar and 15 inch MBP all ports have full functionality.
Probably not a show stopper for anyone...but I find it odd.

I don't care. After buying into the Apple crap and owning every IPhone from 1 to 6S, I bought a Galaxy. Should have done it years ago.
