Neat Premium USB Cable Kickstarter

Do you ever think that the cable that came with your phone is too flimsy, too delicate, too short/long or too plain?  Well JUICIES the makers of higher-end lightning and micro USB cables probably have you covered.  The JUICIES+ XS & XL Kickstarter is entering its final days and will allow them to make shorter and much, much longer versions of their premium cables at the mere 1ft and kind of ridiculous 10ft lengths.  With anodized aluminum ends that match the standard colours of most mobile devices and actual woven metal cable shielding,  JUICIES+ cables are undoubtedly a step above the average cable you’d find in an electronics shop.  Check out their Kickstarter here if you’re interested in supporting them and snagging yourself some very short or very long cables in the process.

In classic Nintendo fashion, Nintendo announced today that at 4:00pm CST tomorrow they’re going to announce a bunch of real news in the midst of all the jokes that will be floating around the web.  Nintendo historically likes doing this for some reason, but whatever that reason is — colour us excited.  Don’t be pulling for any NX or Zelda Wii U news, but expect more info on Yoshi’s Woolly World, Splatoon, and hopefully North American wave 4 amiibos.  We’ll have our usual summary after the event with the coolest news of the day, so stay tuned!

You’ll be able to watch the Nintendo Direct presentation when it goes live right here.
