Nothing to get excited over.
I'm not able to reconcile the 2 bits of information. Automated manufacturing means less human intervention. How exactly are the 30-50k jobs being created? You don't need that many people to manage the automation plant. Are these permanent jobs or temporary work contracts for installing and setting up the automation plant?
I can't imagine a scale of manufacturing that uses automation and needs 50k jobs. I'm definitely missing something here.

Microsoft has a cut-off on the screen size of a tablet on which you can run Office 365 for free. For devices above the threshold size, you need an Office 365 licence to use Office meaningfully.
Based on xenochron's post, it appears that any tablet with a screen size greater than 10.1 will need to get a licence to use Office 365 fully.
Essentially, he's suggesting that the advantage of having the 9.7" over the 10.1" or 12.9" is that Office can be used for free.

Apple really needs to make Apple TV more desirable. Give windows users ZERO reason to purchase content outside of iTunes.
If we didn't know that Windows 10 is the last version of Windows (I'm sure I read that somewhere), here's where I'd postulate that MS would release Windows every year. Next year would be Windows 11, followed by Windows 11 S, then 12 followed by 12 S, etc.
However, now, they'll retain the "10" and just append different letters:
Windows 10 S (School edition - the current one).
Windows 10 U (Ultimate edition - best of Win10 and Win10 S).
Windows 10 C (Convergence edition - everything converges - HoloLens, Laptops, Tablets).
Windows 10 K (Killer edition - the next iOS killer).
Windows 10 S (School edition 2!).

(This is all very scientific, mind you.) I was wondering if, for example, the Bionic side of things runs in the background, until it learns about you or your photos or your ____, and then things settle down to a more copasetic rate of battery consumption.
Basically, every tester could be right, including Consumer Reports, just depending on when they tested.
That is the exact same behaviour I saw as well. My XS Max seemed to drain faster than my X. Now, about 1.5 months later, the XS Max is doing really well.
I also think that the bug, where it wouldn't charge till it was unlocked on occasions, may have played a part as well. I was caught off-guard a couple of times by that.
