The new Macbook Pro is exciting. The touchbar looks like a good idea. A very different solution to a very common problem, which reminds me of the old Apple. It’s refreshing, made me happy.

We have released Surebro 1.3, you can read about that here. One big addition is the ability to track problems posted on Surebro. By track we mean you can see what problems we have already solved, what problems we intend to solve and the problem we are currently solving.
