Plus, Apple's promise that the Thunderbolt 3 Pro won't get tangled when it's coiled should bring some peace to those of us living in a home overrun with cables.
No if you home is overrun with cables they are still going to get tangled!

Apple's braided Thunderbolt 3 cable is expensive but packs a lot of functionality.

You can get an active 2 meter TB3 cable from Amazon for half that price. Unless there is some reason you have to get an Apple branded cable because they aren't adhering to the standard, I don't see a problem with this. If you choose to be ripped off, when there are cheaper options available, that's on you. When Apple charges absurd prices for propriety parts just because they can and you have no other options, that's when they deserve the middle finger.

There are high quality braided cables out there that are going for a fraction of what Apple is charging. I doubt they will sell that many of this overpriced cable.

ROTFL Well,If you can get by with only 3.93 feet of braided cable,you can get THAT on Amazon doing everything Apple is bragging about doing for under $27.00. $100.00 for 2 & 1/2 feet and a NAME? No thank you.
