Does it have LED notification light and does it play notification sound via speaker when BT headphones are connected?

I was on the Wave beta testing program, and I remember well the feeling of awe when I first started using it. Real-time collaboration wasn’t anywhere near where it is today, and there were no tools to organize the hellscape email was at the time - it still is, but now we have tools to help us navigate it.

I have to say, this article is full of useful info about the vacuum, but the wet filter thing made me laugh a bit. Isn’t the default to never put anything wet in something with an electric motor unless there’s some clear indication it’s waterproof? Read more

Oh my goodness, expense reports. I had nearly blocked the traumatic experience of filing expense reports under Univision from my brain, as way too many times, someone in a black hole I had no visibility into would screw something up. I’d be out-of-pocket the whole time, sometimes cutting perilously close to bills Read more
