Pretty sure I have seen at least one film/tv show which used the 1USD bill cleaned up to create higher denominations.
Can't think what it was though, so probably not a great one.

As far as I am aware the Z-Wave and Zigbee kit works with local controllers that don't need an internet connection to work.
My 9 year old Vera Z-Wave controller no longer connects to their web servers and still works perfectly using the web interface built in to it.
I am in my 40s and only remember one place that did it in newspaper, and that was somewhere on the Gower Peninsula in Wales.
They must have had a contact at a printing press as the newspaper pages were never complete, often missing photos or whole articles.
You can own a ".50cal sniper rifle" in the UK, you just need to have good reason, which is long range target shooting on a range that allows it.
There was an attempt to make them illegal to own a few years ago but the people that own and shoot them were able to push enough evidence in to the review that they were kept as legal.
The other types of firearms that were made illegal were type of rapid(ish) firing ones.
I think you under estimate how long schools will want to eke out their investment even in "cheap" computing devices.
They will likely be buying a set for an entire class to be able to use at once, so that will be in the region of 30 of them.
I have been involved in upgrading very old desktops and laptops with SSD and RAM upgrades for complete sets of 30 in a previous job.
Being able to extend their useful life by another couple of years will be important most of the time.
I went swimming with out realising that my Pixel 2 was in my shorts pocket, only found out when my wife pointed it out on the bottom of the pool
Picked it up blew out the USB-C port and kept using it until a year or so later it fell foul of the camera issue that they were known for.
I also spend time on boats and sometimes get wet enough that I would worry about my phone if it wasn't water proof.
I realise my use case isn't yours but waterproofing can be a good thing, and doesn't mean that it can't still be repairable as I have various waterproof items with user changeable batteries etc.
This is for the Office 365 versions of the desktop software, they are designed to constantly update themselves and are the software option that MS is pushing.
For example if you work somewhere that has the Office 365 E3 or above (or Education equivalent) each user gets 5 licenses to install the desktop suite, but only of the automatically updating version.
Almost certainly true in the UK, you just need to go through a lot more paperwork than in "The Land of the Free", my custom 10/22 (not sure if there are any Ruger parts in it apart from the magazines) was less than £250, and that included a scope and moderator (silencer or suppressor or what ever you want to call it).
I think in "The Land of the Free" you would need to spend that much on the license for the suppressor.
I had an argument with a car dealer that a car I got from them (2nd hand, but only 6 months old from a main dealer) wasn't fix for purpose as I asked if it had full iPod control and was told it did.
After I tried it I found it only supported iPods via bluetooth (no track listings etc, but can pause and skip) or AUX in, no control from the car at all.
I said I would be returning it for a full refund if they didn't resolve it, in the end they got an external company in to do an upgrade on the car.
It is an obscure feature that was important to me (I listen to Audible audio books from an iPod classic when driving any distance) and I specifically asked about it before making the deal and would have waited for another one of the same model but with the factory fitted upgrade to come in.
And (at least in 1996) South Korea.
It took me 3 or 4 days to work out why a digitiser connected to a CCTV camera wasn't working (this was part of an animation line test system set up on an Amiga), it had all worked when several together in the UK installed the software and tested. I had even labelled all the connectors with matching sticky dots to make it as easy as possible to put it together.
Several had been sent to 2 different animation companies in Seoul and none were working.
I got nearly a week in Seoul, but only 2 half days to look around as it took so long to find out that it was 60Hz and there was a switch in the CCTV camera that needed changing if it wasn't running on 50Hz
We once lost one of our cats for about 4 days, turns out it had been exploring a near by house that was being renovated and had gotten himself boarded up under the floor.
The workmen had to lift a bit of floor and out popped the cat, came straight home and ate and drank it's own body weight.
They can survive longer than you think
One thing to consider, is the costs of working from home will vary with the seasons for most people.
In the UK in winter the heating bills will go up considerably, my heating comes on for a little bit in the morning for house to be comfortable to wash and dress then goes off until shortly before I would get home from work.
If I am working from home come winter the heating will be on all day.
With similar issues for places that need cooling to be comfortable in summer.
Is the answer not in the article, that they didn't actually change anything to do with the ANC.
I have seen this in desktop support, you tell users that you are going to do something and don't do it for some reason. Suddenly they are all logging tickets saying "since the change such and such hasn't worked", even though there was no change.
What ever it was either is working fine, or had been broken for ages but the idea that we had changed something prompt them to notice it.
It is quite simple, the number of cases were someone has been tested and tested positive is 596.
10,000 is the expected number of actual cases that there in the UK allowing for the fact that the majority of people with symptoms aren't being tested and allowing for people who are infected and not yet showing symptoms.
I am probably coming across as a Sonos apologist, but for those who have suggested possible alternatives none of them come near the Sonos experience and especially not for non-technical people.
The multi room side of Sonos gives perfectly in sync sound across rooms, the set up is user friendly and simple, adding music services is also user friendly and simple.
The sound quality out of the "Play" speakers is good enough for most people under most circumstances and the "Connect" is there for those that want better quality from their existing speakers and amps.
Management seems set on destroying the reputation of the product with these announcements and then retractions though
