SLI/Crossfire is kind of dead.

Really doubt they will go down that route. The last Mac Pro had dual GPU in every configuration and it seemed to be a bad decision. I think Apple betted on multi GPU being the future, but it just didn't turn out that way.

For gaming, yes.  For production workloads that leverage CUDA and its AMD equivalent, not remotely.  Particularly anything scientific research related, deep/machine learning, etc, multi-GPU is alive and well and is definitely the future.  Remembet that not everyone who buys a “Pro” machine is a graphics professional (where Adobe still has trouble getting Premiere to use more than six cores at all, and the other CS apps are even less MP-aware...).

Ugh, yeah, everyone was so stiff and awkward during Season 1 of TNG.  Even parts of S2.  

DS9’s first season issue is primarily a “trying to find our niche” issue.  Most of the actors were far more fluid and “in character” (though some, like Colm Meany had a bit of an unfair advantage) thaN TNGs early shows, but they just didnt seem to know what kind of stories they were trying to tell.  

Garak, though.... Andrew Robinson was spot-on from minute one.  One of my favorite Garak quotes, from the episode “The Wire”...

"Of all the stories you told me, which ones were true and which ones weren't?"
"My dear Doctor, they're all true."
"Even the lies?"
"Especially the lies."

I'm early into season 2 of DS9 and I cannot imagine why some people think this is the best Trek series. So. Many. Characters. To. Hate. So far, Quark is the only tolerable character on the show. Don't @ me.

... you dont like Garak?  Hes probably the best character on the entire show.

In my car I sometimes need to charge the phone and have it plugged in to the sound system at the same time. Dongle doesn't solve that problem. Very happy with my iPhone SE, not looking forward to getting one without a jack one day. I'll deal with it one way or another, but I can understand the outcry.

a 10$ bluetooth dongle will solve your issue entirely.  its seriously that easy.  

I cant remember the last time i plugged in a pair of headphones to a mobile device, or used an audio cable in my car.  Ive had bluetooth headsets for my listening, and a bluetooth dongle in the car, pretty much since they were available.
