From the Pinkbike article is sounds as if you can make either of the three buttons on the "shifter" do either of the 3 operations (upshift, downshift, dropper control).  But each button can only perform one operation.  Then, if you also buy the wireless reverb AXS as well, you gain a 4th programmable button that can also perform any of the 3 operations, but not more than one at a time.  At least that's what I get from the following two paragraphs: _"Instead of a thumb paddle and release trigger, there are actually three 'buttons' to choose from: the two under the bar would usually be setup to move the derailleur in opposite directions, and the third button that sits on the front of the shifter is designed to go to a harder gear if you bump it with your knuckle. SRAM is calling it the "secret sprint paddle" because it seems to work really well in those settings, but you can make any of the three "touch points" (that's what SRAM's calling the buttons) control shifting in any direction or even take command of your Reverb AXS dropper post, all via the AXS app."_ _"Want your Reverb AXS remote on the left to shift to a higher gear, the shifter button in the right to move the chain to an easier gear, and the ''secret sprint paddle'' to control the Reverb? Not a problem and as easy as tapping your phone's screen a few times."_ At least that's what I get out of the descriptions above and from the PB article.  It leaves me wondering if there's some kind of USB access to update software??  Could they, down the line add functionality that users request?
