    It's very likely since Facebook will have access to all the data. I wouldn't be surprised if a number of tools drop their integrations from it. Namely Twitter.

    A few things, not specific to work:

    I think people are actually using social media as it should be used. Not sharing endless crap with each other but also actually talking to each other in text and video. I don't think I've ever spoken to my friends so much.

    Also anyone who has a digital project for remote teams, well you're going to be doing well.

    In the flesh I bet it looks completely different, and most likely better. I'll reserve my true opinion until I see it in the flesh. Though considering some of their more recent design choices (namely the 1-series, i4 and x7) I'm losing a little hope.

    How can they make a car as fine as the 3-series touring and churn out other wrap models?

    Personally I'd avoid 4k displays.

    If you're designing you can't run it as a 'higher resolution' to mimic 2560x1440. It just looks wrong. So instead you have to run it at '1920x1080' (So 4 pixels for every 1 virtual pixel) which just doesn't give enough screen space.

    The majority of people I work with (including me) use LG UltraFine 5K displays. They're truly brilliant, aside from the pretty boring design.

    Amuses me there's no option for a company with 26-49 employees

    The full-blown docking stations are, as you say, over the top and crazy. Personally I'd get a decent USB-C dongle so you can connect a display and other peripherals with one plug. I have one of the LG 5k Displays which I find is by far enough space. Though I recently hooked up an older 2560x1440 display in portrait for things like Spotify which is nice but by no means necessary.
