    2 pairs of JBL Focus wired headphones. Inexpensive, so I can use and abuse them with my iPod at the gym. Not worried about sound quality as they are only going to be receiving the TV audio transmitted over FM. Not exactly Hi-Fi. But it'll do.

    (The second pair is for my mom as her headphones have so many knots and tears in the cord, they won't be lasting much longer...)

    Did you look at the Asus routers? I run Merlin-WRT on the RT-5300 and it's very good.

    Why not, if both charger and cable is UBS-IF compliant? USB 3.1 Gen 2/Power Delivery 3.0 is capable of 100W (20V/5A). Comparatively, delivering up to 18W (9V/2A), which the iPhone X and Pixel 2 are capable of, or 39W (15V/2.6A) which the Nintendo Switch can draw, is peanuts. The cables are also shorter and thicker than many notebook chargers, though data lanes obviously contribute to said thickness. I look forward to a world of universal chargers and cables, along with bi-directional power.

    They did popularize probably my favorite connection method, magnetic. That mag charger on macbooks is awesome, and its one of my favorite features on my SP2. (also the mag keyboard attachment is great)

    USB-C was not meant for that kind of wattage. I've taken apart a USB C cable to see how well it was built. I'd sooner put 18 watts thru a sparkler.

    It's supposed to be at or near 70°F this week in my neck of the woods. The last hurrah for summer here this year I presume, though one can always be surprised. I'm hoping the last of the leaves fall off my neighbors tree so I can mulch the lawn and lay down the:
