The video conference company that provided for predictable fake scenarios of people getting caught in underwear will remove its 40 minute call cap from 0000h EST 11/26 to 0600h 11/27.
The green screen with Jerry Seinfeld's apartment 5A was the best result of the quickly accepted technology all summer.
This is a good move for the company that was in a prime position to capitalize on the plague's effect on the economy and the way we communicate. $ZM's market cap was 36.54 billion USD in March 16, 2020. Today, it's worth 113.60 billion USD. It's cool they spotted everyone a solid 30 hour window.
One side effect was a shortage of after market web cameras and proper microphones. Free weights are still in short supply and bench bars are completely unavailable. Is there a correlation to be found with the shortages? Probably.
Another side effect we (humans) discovered is the annoying ticks of our colleagues. On that list is this weird phenomenon of people looking down and watching themselves talk on their screens instead of looking into the camera. We now know the intricate details of so many foreheads. When friends are challenged, they'll claim they're watching the other people on the call. This is easily disproved, however, because we can see their eyes move when others are talking.
