Quick scroll is great (anywhere looks to have it as well) - scan through files, or VS solution explorere, or document specs instead of
Just now found thumb scroll works in google docs as up/down scrolling. But not in normal web pages.

I Deal with many XP Computers which are not connected to the Internet at all. Does anyone know how to download Open Office to an installation CD or USB Memory pen for distribution to these computers?
Since Oracle (and even it passed it over to Apache), OpenOffice gone into a very slow development cycle (no version since December 2017)... You should go with LibreOffice (a fork actively maintained)...
You can download a msi installer and put in on USB to pass around...

I was talking to guy at work about this just a little while ago. This is likely the result of Amazon's automatic pricing. He has seen it do weird things to prices of the books he used to sell. He really likes this example. I once saw a calendar that I buy every year for less than $20 priced at $190.
Wow! that's the most expensive (cheap) item on amazon I've seen so far. I agree with some that this is either a money laundering scheme or an automation error. If it is in error, I would think that the seller would have it corrected in order to sell the item. What makes it suspicious on these items is that there is only one at that price.

I totally agree. I would have bought one already if
1. They had USB-C. I have a monitor that doesn't accept anything but USB-C and now that I'm used to plugging in a single cable for power, USB and display, there's not much desire to go backwards
2. They fix that awful hinge (At least on the Surface book). A good device made ham-fisted.
Well, I guess I just cross my fingers and see what Apple has in store in a couple of weeks. Maybe that Macbook Air replacement[^] will do it - though they are going to need to avoid that awful keyboard they are using on the new MacBooks and the woeful USB-C display drivers before I lay down more cash.
