With no metal bezel surrounding a glass lens, seems like it would be way more likely to break due to accidents that current phones survive intact. They're going to have to explore a radically different glass technology to prevent that. Or they could just use current glass tech, and make more money on repairs, I suppose.
It would be really great if we could see the price we are approving on the iPhone's SCREEN. In a lot of situations, especially when traveling, the price screen is not easy to see on hand held readers and in some cases the cashier has to type in the price and then hold out the reader to the buyer with the screen facing away from them or in a foreign language. Why was it not this way from the beginning?
The new Sonnet dock has a much better balance of ports and it's $50 cheaper: 4x USB-C 3.2, 4x USB-A 3.2, 3x Thunderbolt, 1x HDMI, x2 Audio/Mic ports, 1x RCA audio (L,R), 2.5Gbps Ethernet, NVEs storage slot, SD 4.0 slot and 100W Power Delivery. Support up to x2 6k monitors or x1 8k monitor (also over HDMI). It's easy enough to buy native USB-C (Thunderbolt) to HDMI or DisplayPort cables if you need two HDMI or DisplayPort connections; these are not adapters since HDMI and DisplayPort work natively over USB-C (Thunderbolt), as do most protocols, even ethernet.
Personally, I don't bother with USB-A unless I have a legacy devices with that type of cable. I mostly just use them for charging other devices.
The Satechi dock is beat by this new Sonnet dock in every way for less money.

What do you mean by memory buffer? The CPU, GPU, ML and all other processing cores have direct access to the same memory space simultaneously. Unless data is coming from the SSD, once its in RAM is does not have to be shuttled back and forth, as a traditional GPU card would have to do. This is why a Mx chip can do more with less power.
