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.
I've restored from an iPhone X backup to my new iPhone XS Max last weekend and the one thing that is most frustrating is that all the songs in my library need to be re-downloaded. I don't have my full library on my iPhone, but it still had over a 100GB of songs.
I have a fast enough internet connection to download them without too much hassle, but the other problem is that there is no option to download all the songs at once. I went to the Songs option on Apple Music and it has no "download all" option. I had to do it album by album, which was a real pain.
The alternative was to delete everything and copy the albums from my local copies on iTunes.
Luckily, the hooks were all there, since I am subscribed to iTunes Match. So all my concerts and rare albums were all there, just waiting to be downloaded.
I need to come up with some strategy for the best way to put my music library back for the next iPhone launch.
On a positive note, my custom Memojis were successfully transferred from the X to the Max without any issues!

If anyone buys them, that’s on them...
The "Google makes reference designs" meme is as big as the "Apple products are form over function" meme.

I’m considering selling them as a two for the price of (a new) one; anyone think that’s a decent value? No WiFi issues and after calibration they are almost identical to my MBP display.
Deal with it dude. We've put up with your posts, haven't we?
This is OT, but rumour is that Spotify will launch in India and will undercut Apple Music's pricing. I wonder how that will work out, considering that I pay the equivalent of $3 for a Family Subscription on Apple Music here.
Having said that, I wouldn't move to Spotify since I'm ok with just one music streaming service. The market here may not be that big, but Apple may probably have the same advantage Spotify had in the US, in that it was here first.
Since the launch of Apple Music, there have been lots of local and a few international music streaming services, like Amazon Prime. I really don't know how much of a dent Spotify will make here.
