It it looks like watches are replacing phones, phones are replacing regular iPads, and pro iPads are replacing MacBooks.
Since I wear jeans and I don’t carry a hand bag, I hope they will keep making iPhone 5 sized phones. With an end to end display like the iPhone X, that would make the screen big enough. I guess I’ll have to get used to wearing watches though.
So Pai says that having 1 ISP to choose from is enough competition to guarantee that consumer needs are met, but having dozens of phone and radio options is not enough competition to let market forces regulate the industry.
I have another suggestion. Wireless ISPs should allow free roaming during emergencies.
I don't understand why all switch reviewers seem to have an issue with the lack of Netflix and other apps. I have way too many devices that support netflix already. On my main TV I have 4 devices with Netflix (Smart TV, Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick, PS4). I really don't need more devices with Netflix, or browsers, or Spotify, or chat. It is like saying you need more devices with a clock built in. I already have a whole scavenger hunt in my house twice a year when the time changes. What I want is fun family games that the PS4 lacks with a simplest possible menu so that I can go from booting up to playing my games as fast as possible.
Extenders don’t require a new ssid. You just need to make sure the passwords are the same. The hand off when you move around the house should be better with a setup designed for connecting you to the best access point.
To me only the Orbi makes sense for a mid size house. The Orbi is not really a mesh router though. All satellites talk to the base station via the dedicated backhaul channel. It is basically a range extender set up with easier setup.
The issue with the dongles is not so much the price (you can buy dongles from competitors), but that you never have the right dongle with you when you need one. You can off course glue a dongle to your laptop, but then it is not a thin laptop anymore. You can always buy the previous model though. You can probably get a good deal on that one.

This is a solid laptop with solid specs. Within a year, this laptop will get Samsunged by everyone else and it will be the norm. Watch.
Samsung and HP will copy the design, but they will likely add some ports.
