    Question Can anyone recommend a USB-C cable with a particularly secure connector?

    The USB-C ports on my MacBook are very loose, much looser than other devices when using the same cable. That said, there's one USB-C cable in particular (namely, the one supplied with a SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD 1 TB) that is rock solid, even when plugged into my MacBook's ports. I saw the...

    I wonder if I could migrate data between two Windows computers with a USB-C cable (but not one of those unusual cables with a knot in the middle, just a normal USB-C cable) and with Windows default software (not any third party software). Would that be faster than using a crossover Ethernet...
