I recently purchased an iPhone 11 Pro, what a beautiful device!
This is a short post to share with you some pictures of the internals of the iPhone 11 Pro Max captured from a JerryRigEverything video who was so kind to make a great shot of the device on one of his great videos.
I have created an album in SmugMug with different versions of the screenshot so you can use the images as you like. You will be able to download the full quality images as SmugMug doesn’t alter the quality of the pictures you upload.
Hope you like them! And thank you Jerry for allowing us to make these captures!
PS: I recommend you to give SmugMug a try, they allow you to store unlimited pictures in their full quality for a very fair annual fee. With this link you get 20% off and me too 😉

I made some research which took quite some time, so I thought on sharing it in this post so you can also benefit of the information.
I was looking for a Thunderbolt 3 Dock which would allow me to connect my external ultra wide screen, keyboard, mouse, Ethernet network and some other things to the dock and then with the plug of one single Thunderbolt 3 cable from the dock to a 2017 MacBook Pro 15″ which I ordered. I would like to be able to connect all the things AND charge the notebook at the same time without the need to plug the power adapter of the Mac.
You have to be careful because not all docks charge a MacBook Pro 15″ (they dont have enough power).
The only models that would do so until today (July 19th 2017) are:

Syncing pictures from your mobile devices (phones & tablets) should be something really easy and straightforward.
If you have an iPhone, syncing the pictures with a Mac seems to be pretty straight forward, unless you have thousands of images, then things get to be a bit complicated (sometimes).
I switched to a Windows 10 laptop (maybe temporarily) some time back, I tried to import all my iPhone pictures using the Windows Photos App, but somehow its lack of flexibility and not properly deleting the pictures that were already imported on my iPhone made things more complicated. The fact that you cant be sure if the pictures where actually synced to delete them at least manually, freaked me out.

So, the Apple October 27th event is now in the recent past and a lot of us were really waiting to have the first look at our potential next laptop.
The event was focused mainly on the Touch Bar a new touch screen above the keyboard of the new MacBook Pro line that occupies the spot where once the old function keys (F1, F2, etc.) slept for so many years. The touch bar implementation is genius, it really looks great and Apple taking most of the time of the event just on this feature, showed us how proud they felt about it or that this was all the innovation we were going to see on the event. They also added the long waited Touch ID sensor to the MacBook, which for me should have already been there at least a generation back.

Some time back, I decided to sell my Retina MacBook Pro 15″ (late 2013) for reasons I explained on this post, so I started a crusade to find the best possible Windows laptop I could buy as a replacement, but it had to meet my requirements:
- Under 2 Kg of weight.
- Ideally with a dedicated graphics card in case I wanted to do graphic intensive stuff or some eventual gaming.
- A lot of RAM and Processor power so I could run multiple tabs, apps and virtual machines.

Let’s start by a quick introduction. I’m a geek; I’ve been using devices in mobility for a while. Since using a handheld I was dreaming that one day, I would be able to have only one device next to my phone for all my uses. Until recently, the number of devices in my bag only grew. Until one day in April this year, when the Surface Pro 4 made the dream coming to life…
My Surface Pro 4 home desktop setup
Back in 2003 I used for less than few days a Slate Windows Tablet PC based on Windows XP. I liked the stylus idea, but the experience was not so great, especially because most applications where not yet designed for this. Since then, the tablet situation has changed a lot. With Vista and then 7, tablet pcs evolved, and while the stylus was getting better, the rest of the hardware was still far from perfect: heavy, low battery life (expect 2 hours and a half at best). Then came the iPad, which changed a lot the state of the art for the slates: good battery life, light, but with a mobile OS and its limitations and no stylus. Then came Surface, and Surface Pro. I will focus this piece on Surface Pro 4, which replaced my previous 2 years and a half old Surface Pro 2 one month and a half ago.
