BBO Team matches - recommended set up options for undo, barometer and kibitz
Maybe some day, if not already available, BBO will program voice input of bids and cards. Naturally, other players won't hear the spoken bids and cards.

Yes, unfortunately the booming economy and stock market and super low unemployment is a thing of the past for a while. :(
