Last year we covered a google engineers crusade to uncover shoddy USB type C cables through amazon reviews. Now it seems like Benson Leung has gained a new ally in this fight against crappy cables and it’s Amazon themselves. Amazon has added a new line in its policy for restricted products. And now it includes “USB Type-C cable or adapter product that is not compliant with standard specifications issued by “USB Implementers Forum Inc.” So now we can all rest a little bit more easy when shopping for type C cables on Amazon.
Speaking of Amazon, remember their dash buttons that came out last year? You know the button you press to reorder stuff like paper towels or gatorade? In celebration of their one year anniversary, Amazon has decided to expand the products from 28 brands to a total of 106! That’s 78 new buttons. So of the new brands include Brita, Doritos, Lysol, Purina, Redbull and a whole lot more. These dash buttons are certainly going to make getting groceries a whole lot easier.
