Re: 6G may be
With 6G we will finally get those remote surgeries which were mentioned (with a straight face) as a reason why we needed 5G.

The potential benefit is time saving: it writes eloquent text and it can write working code. But that of course only works if the user actually understands the outputs. So a "prompt engineer" role will never exist. Apart from that, the big question remains if the time saved outweigh the massive cost.
Would be an obligation for bots to start every paragraph with the words "this may or may not be true, i have no way of knowing". That way it's easily spotted in the "journalism" of the lazy reporter class. It would also clearly lay the blame with the reporter who decides to remove that phrase. And it would also make it clear to the believers that the technology is a bullshit generator with a good accuracy rate.
In Word (and PowerPoint) you are supposed to use the compress pictures tool to remove cropped parts and size them down. I actually find this useful in a text editor because it allows you to revert the crop or resize the images before finalizing the document. You can always use an image editor of course.
With respect to the first part of your comment, 100% agree.
The same is true of unix (like) systems. The idea is that each component of that system does one thing (well). If you think of the relational database as a system of components, it's entirely the same thing. In 20 years time, graph db systems will be full of technical debt and features that almost nobody uses (anymore). But why should you care about this? This is the same kind of reasoning that leads to so many new programming languages while the same kind of features can be added to existing ones.
This "perceived" integration is a big selling point, yes. Until you realize just how badly the different products integrate. Maybe because none of them appear to be properly designed, but look more like an interns project that then got bombarded to primetime because it resembles a bad copy of a popular tool.
