I’m incredibly cheap and almost never pay extra for a seat assignment, but my wife and I are going to Greece next April, and the plane we’re on is a 3-4-3 layout, but with a few two-seat rows in the back. We paid an extra $220 roundtrip total to ensure we’d have a row to ourselves for both of the ~10 hour fights, and Read more

Fair, I added an editor’s note. I challenged that point in the comments on Monday, but should have clarified it here as well.

Edit: I saw your other comment. Yeah, you should only use the official Nintendo charger with the Switch dock (with its weird USB-C charging/video out setup), but any well-made USB-C charger is fine in handheld mode.

USB-C to Lightning cables exist, and they work with the chargers we’re discussing this week!

Something I forgot to add: Ryan still refers to The Inventory as “TheInventory” and Kinja Deals as “KinjaDeals” in important internal emails even though I’ve corrected him dozens of times over the years. Best of luck to his new employers at Untuck It.

Looks like it sold out and they replaced the ASIN with a different product, which Amazon really shouldn’t allow!

No, Marriott reward night rates vary, and start at 7,500 points (soon to be 5,000 for off-peak rates), but every year starting on your first cardmember anniversary, you get a free night certificate valid on rooms worth 35,000 points or less. You don’t have to actually spend any points to redeem that free night; it’s a Read more

Honestly, Celeste is amazing, and I don’t know how all of us simultaneously forgot to include it.

FTL would be tough with a controller, but I’d probably buy it anyway.

I got sent a sample of one about a year ago that used a downward facing camera that you put on top of your TV to determine what colors were being displayed on each side of the screen, and update the strip light accordingly. It...kind of worked, but not well enough to be worth it.
