Default Logitech Z305 laptop speaker

In 2011 I bought a Logitech Z305 clip-on laptop speaker. It's shaped like a bar, and I can either clip it on to the back of the screen or lay it in front. It's also easy to transport because the stereo is at the ends of a single bar, and not in multiple speakers.

The speaker cost me $48.99 on Amazon. Today it is selling on Amazon as a discontinued product for $249.98. Maybe Logitech should have kept making them.

LOL!

I'll see your $250 and raise you a bunch. A couple friends of mine wrote THE book on creating PowerPoint templates. I forget what it sold for originally ... 50 bucks or less, maybe? But check it out on Amazon now!

https://www.amazon.com/Building-Powe...inford+terberg

And several lunatics have it for sale (used, no less) at $1895.43 and slightly higher. And want $4.95 shipping atop that.

PharmaBro, got *nuthin'* on this.

At the price they are asking, they really should give you free shipping! '-}}

OTOH, if you can afford their book prices, their shipping prices are pocket change, if that. ;-)

Maybe you can wait 'em out. A book my dad co-wrote used to be on Amazon for a similarly insane price but now I see it's back to only two or three times the probable cover price. And in checking it out, I stumbled across this blast from the past:

https://www.amazon.com/Metro-Moving-...ords=rindsberg

At least they spelled the surname right. Steven (as opposed to Stephen) would be a doctor in San Diego, not me.
