Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Not in 99.99% of cases.

When someone pays more for a Honda than for example Chrysler, they're usually doing so for the reliability.

(If you're talking about paying more for a luxury car vs "regular," you're right)

Probably because they believe that the extra $900 basically gets you a brand name and/or style points, not a significant increase in comfort / decrease in back pain etc
BTW in case I wasn't clear, I wasn't saying this as a fact, I was giving a possible explanation why "somebody" wouldn't spend more on a chair.

I ones saw on someone's PC, as he hovers over a file it displays the file in a popup box(it was a MAC), far example a video will stat playing as long the mouse is on the file.
How do I get this, and can any PC have it ?   
This is probably not the best thread for your post, but I believe you're referring to the quick look feature available on macOS. IIRC, you press the spacebar on a highlighted file.

For Windows there is this - https://lifehacker.com/how-to-get-apples-quick-look-feature-in-windows-10-1827277007

A good mattress and a good office chair are 2 things I'll never understand people being cheap with.

People spend $20k+ on a car they use maybe an hour a day. But gawk at the idea of spending $1k on a chair you spend 8+ hours in a day or $2k on a mattress or you spend 6+ hours in a night.

Doesn't add up to me.

(And I'm being very generous with this numbers)
and $6 on a pair of socks they spend 16 hours a day in...
Monkeys don't fly unless you put them on airplanes

I have some employees on my team that sit in an open area together. They often have to get on zoom calls and are having a lot of issues with the background noise from the others in the room.
Are there any good webcam/Mic options that help eliminate background noise for a better experience?

Headsets? Also if there are multiple people in the same room on one zoom call only one of them should have their mic on at a time.
I'm not who you think I am.

Not as much a concern about multiple at the same time. Any suggestions for good headsets that block out background noise on the Mic, that are reasonably priced?

Logitech - MX Master 3 $80 from Staples when you use promo code 74638.

Some of the Chase cards have an offer for 10% off at Best Buy. If you get a price match that would put the total at $72.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
