It's generally faster to hit a modifier key than it is to move your fingers all the way over to the pgup/down/etc area. I'd much rather hit Ctrl-A/E for Home/End, Ctrl-U/D for pgup/down, etc. I'd take shell-like or vim-like keys any day.
puffery is a promotional statement or claim that expresses subjective rather than objective views
The company selling this cable does make objective assertions about this cable which are blatantly false. Just because most of it is subjective doesn't mean there aren't some objective lies mixed in.
The real loser in all of this is the child, however. It's not fair for the child that their redneck anti-vax parents should be able to put their health at risk. I find it hilarious that conservatives tend to be "pro-life" yet support someone's right to not get vaccinated, as if a fetus is somehow more important than an actual child.
What next, systemd incorporates a mysql server?
So I order something from Amazon, and they required an in-person sig, which I didn't even know until they left the note. After calling UPS to try to just get them to dump the thing out front, they directed me to their website. Of course, their website didn't work because it thought my address was invalid, and their phone support couldn't help me with that. I also called Amazon and asked them why the hell they required an in-person signature to begin with, and their support was equally unhelpful.
The end result? I had to drive for a total of an hour to pick up my $7 cable 2 days later than I should have had it. I'm pretty sure it would have been a better use of time to just go to a store to buy it. Why Amazon required in-person signing for a $7 package to begin with is beyond me.
