[Lolz] Google warns you not to cut the cord between the two earbuds on the Pixel buds

I'm not sure about you, but when I see a wireless earbud set connected with a rope/cable/cord/something, I don't immediately grab my scissors and start cutting it to make the whole thing completely wireless. Just like when I see a set of wired earphones I don't cut the cord and hope that'd make them work over Bluetooth. It's common sense.

But maybe the trend toward completely wireless buds has become common enough that people could assume things about the new Pixel Buds. Things that aren't true like the fact that the cord between them is completely optional: maybe it's just for decoration, or Google doesn't want you to lose one, or to avoid you looking like a dork with things pointing out of your ears, or to stop freaking people out when they see someone with long hair talk to themselves...

Official (And Very Expensive) RCA And Optical Cable Adapters For The Chromecast Audio Are Now In The Google Store

The new Chromecast Audio is neat. But the box only comes with a 1/8th inch aux cable (AKA a headphone cable), so if you want to use that handy little streaming gadget with anything that doesn't have a standard headphone jack, you'll have to dive into your rat's nest of ancient cables and adapters. Or you could head for Radio Shack, realize that Radio Shack closed two years ago and you never noticed, then head to Best Buy, ask the guy in the blue shirt where the audio cables are, find him again and ask him where the audio cable that you actually want is, then leave the store in defeat when he admits he's out of stock, then finally go home and wait a week for a $5 cable to come in the mail from Amazon.

[Small Deal Alert] Spec-Compliant USB 2.0 Type-C iOrange-E Cable $10.99 With Coupon On Amazon

About a month ago, Google engineer Benson Leung went on an Amazon crusade against companies claiming to sell USB Type-A to Type-C charging and data cables. As Benson found out from his extensive reviews, most of them were selling non-compliant cables with the wrong kind of resistor that could potentially damage your Type-C devices (like the new Nexus 5X, 6P, Chromebook Pixel). The list of correct cables was small and the braided USB 3.1 USB 2.0 iOrange-E was among them. It also happened to be the cheapest back then at $14.99.

A month later, the situation has changed a little bit.
