    With the two cameras, it computes a depth map. It blurs the photo regions beyond the chosen depth. Because Apple edits nondestructively, you can revise the photo later.

    100%. I use an AEBS extended with an Express and it provides excellent coverage and speed for our home. No need to invest in an expensive mesh network as long as they keep functioning.

    So Amazon bought eero yesday.

    Judging by the reaction from any number of techies, my recent posts on AirPort were prescient - they are saying either:
    1) Apple shouldn't have abandoned AirPort or should revive it ASAP.
    2) Apple should have bought eero
    3) They now regret having bought eero or are happy that they didn't yet because they don't trust Amazon on privacy.

    Yes, of course these are all techies, not the average user (who, like I argued, haven't heard of eero and are using cable co. routers), but it will be interesting to see if Apple changes its mind and returns to the router business in the future.

    I’m glad this happened before I bought a mesh. This bolsters my plan to buy Netgear Orbi, pending whatever the reviews say last this year.

    No way I’m giving Google or Amazon direct tap into my home internet.

    Now that you’ve said that, Facebook will probably buy Netgear. :D
