last shot for today, 741 left. at least 200 are solved when filling a GND plane, so around 500 left for real. most of USB, displays, main power, audio, ethernet is done. a lot of fiddly stuff left for the charger/battery cells controls and the LPC (microcontroller). this board might look unusually bulky because i always tried to choose components that are hand-serviceable, so avoided BGA, QFNs and passives smaller than 0603.

The new daily mantra of Amazon Alexa owners?
“Alexa, delete everything I said today”.

@natjlevy reports you can now delete recordings with a simple voice command, but sadly only a partial day's worth.“ Alexa, delete what I just said” also works. geekwire.com/2019/now-can-eras
