Its there own biogenik brand but some people might be interested. I picked up a 10ft extention cable as the cable on my nes classic is super short. Almost picked up the controller but it uses triple a batteries so its not for me.

I bought the extension cable. I need it for a super nes but description says it’s for nes and wii u. When I look at the picture it looks the same.

That's a nice and cheap USB-C adapter on the poke ball accessory. Any idea on how long is the cable, what type is the other end and if it supports fast charging?

I picked up the NES mini controllers. I haven't used them, they are cheap looking but at $1 why not try.

You may laugh at that but some people managed to invest $50,000 to $100,000 for 1000 stocks and came out $22 million dollars richer by selling at around its peak value.
He turned that 10,000 stocks into 50,000 stocks and sold around the peak selling price.

The reason why Gamestop was fluctuating so much is because Wallstreet investors bought them up in volume and then resold them with the promise of buying them back a week later,
hoping that the stock would decrease in value during that time. Reddit traders picked up on this and started buying up the stock knowing that the people that hedged
on the buying back the stock back would have no choice but to pay way more than what they intended.

I know, made a decent chunk myself. But I was lucky. Now there's a lot of bag holders out there that actually are holding onto 300 shares they bought at $300. Even DeepValue from your article only liquidated a fraction of his holdings, and held most of it thorough the peak. Unless he's faking his screenshots, he lost out on possible gains of $50 - $60 million.

You have most of it right, but you have the mechanics of it wrong. Wallstreet investors didn't buy anything. They sold "short", which means they borrowed the shares that were currently held by other institutions they work with and sold them at the then current market price. Their hope was to buy they stock back at a much lower price, and pocket the different, eg, borrrow 1000 shares, sell it for $20/share($20000), buy 1000 shares back when/if it drops to $1($1000), and pay back the 1000 shares they owed, pocketing $19000. What the reddit mob did was create artificial demand for the stock, pushing its price up artificially. When the price hit $350/share, if say, 1 million shares had been sold short at $20, this would represent a potential loss of $330 million. Wallstreet investors said they abandoned their positions (bought the stock back and repaid it at a big loss) but I'm skeptical. I'm sure many that were able to doubled down on their positions and sold more short somewhere near the high. Now that the stock is down in the $60s, alot of those reddit investors that drove the price up to $350 are sitting on huge unrecoverable losses as it's very unlikely the stock will ever go that high again. What they should've done, was maybe agreed upon a base price to keep stock at, maybe $40‐50/share, not allowing it to drop below that. Who knows though, I haven't followed it all closely enough to know how much of the push to $350/share was a result of reddit investors buying the stock up versus some of the Wallstreet investors having to buy it up to cover (pay back) their positions.

Also got a few cases thinking they will be useful for things like a Raspberry pi and controllers, other portable gaming systems, or general cable storage and management.

I think the street sniffed out an idiot (Melvin) which went in way over his head and ganged up on him, you can see the stock was already being accumulated in the latter half of last year. Reddit was a catalyst but probably not the main driving force but the funds that benefited are more than happy to let the amateurs take the limelight and be the heroes while they just quietly pocket the profits. The last thing that pros want is publicity.

Wow! a lot of crap, some cool stuff that is long sold out, my guess. Why did they make Modern Family Pop! figures, who in their right mind would pay full price for these?

Fyi... the cases are waaaaaay bigger than I thought. If anyone in toronto wants one, I have a few extras. Pick up in East York.
