Best Buy is selling a $1,500 USB cable and the reviews are internet gold

Imagine that we've given you $1,459.99 (£1,002.36). 

Nice wadge of cash that. The sort of money that, in physical form, begs you to enact the rap music video staple "make it rain" move.

An object you'd probably never conceive of splashing that considerable sum on is a USB cable. Or rather, a $1,459.99 16.4' USB A-to-USB B Cable in stylish black/grey. That's the price that US retailer Best Buy is currently putting on a cable that just connects one thing to another thing. 

The reviews for this absurdly priced wire are predictably superb.
