Okay, I’m sure everyone has already seen this, but it made me laugh out loud sitting here alone in the kitchen.
The scathingly funny Amazon reviews for the Denon AKDL1 Link Cable, a $500 ethernet cable “made of high-purity copper wire” to “get the purest signal from multi-channel DVD and CD playback.” Yes, a $500 ethernet cable so that your digital music will sound better.

(If you’re a marketing person or just a normal friend of mine… Ethernet protocol involves lots of making-sure-the-digits-are-right stuff. Unless you’ve crafted your ethernet cable out of coat-hangers, your music is not going to sound any different on the $2 cable you took home from the office than on this $500 cable.)
