I think, well, hope, that if Google proves Sonos infringed on some of their patents, the resolution will be a cross-licensing agreement that allows to keep (or bring back) the functionality that used the disputed patents.
I am definitely waiting for that one as well – to see how it compares.
GP27-FUS seems better on paper, but will cost a few hundred bucks more, and we’ve got to see how it performs in real life still.
The M9 definitely isn’t perfect, as this and other reviews point out, but it still might be just a ‘good enough’ one for the price.
(Also, yes, I am fully aware that for my console gaming and the best bang for the buck I should just get me some OLED TV and be done with it, but unfortunately my desk space is way too small for a 42" TV and the living room is set up for a projector with a 85"+ screen, so nah, not exactly a viable option in my specific case.)

This lack of 1440p support was exactly what pushed me to get a decent 4K monitor for my desk when I bought PS5…
…And resulting in me eyeing the high-ish end of monitor spectrum now, to get 120Hz, VRR and better than basic HDR performance.
Definitely not going down to 1440p now, especially if VRR support is potentially not there…
That said – good on Sony for getting there, better late than never, and this will be great for people who game on PCs and already have a great 1440p display.
I don’t think a lot of people will – or should – get a 1440p monitor now just for consoles though.
I also guess that the Inzone M7 monitor is all but confirmed then, slotting exactly between M9 and M5.

You are both right and wrong.
Cotton does breathe well, yes, if it stays mostly dry. Loose cotton (and even better – linen), is great for just being in the warm weather, casually walking around etc.
But cotton still has all the downsides mentioned in the article when it’s wet, and – as also mentioned – cotton can get quite wet quite fast from your own perspiration, especially when it’s hot, you have a backpack, etc.
Even if it won’t make you cold exactly unless it’s chilly/shady, the sweaty cotton base layer will make you uncomfortable at best, and badly chaffed and with skin infections at worst.
That’s why it is not the best choice of clothing material for any extended physical activity, especially in the hot weather.
Synthetic or woolen base layers are a thing because they move the moisture away from your body to the outer layers, keeping you cool, but dry.
I have seen a company (some software house, if recall correctly) giving their employees custom Lego BrickHeadz sets designed in their likeness as Christmas gifts – I would love to see such a service available publicly too – although I can see how minifigs have wider appeal.
Definitely had the similar experience. I wouldn’t get away with doing anything using buttons/keys in bed when my GF is trying to fall asleep – touchpad and touchscreen taps are barely tolerable… But fan noise wouldn’t be much of an issue.
