I initially thought I'd prefer a slightly thicker design with flush mounted lens and slightly better battery life.

But this is hardly a case study in support of states with right-wing, reactionary, racist, anti-science, anti-education, Koch-Brothers-approved government policies. I will wager that neither Apple nor any leading tech company will ever relocate their headquarters to Alabama.   Here's a video that better demonstrates what's possible with a...
