I don't normally complain but his splice is painful - it will come undone if anyone is so much as in the same house as it.
That splicing works for solid-core conductors, but it doesn't have the same strength on stranded wire, as it is more flexible. It could work on tinned thin stranded wire (as it makes a kindof-solid wire) but if you tin it then you can just solder it and that's it. The referenced standard also contains the splicing for stranded wire, and some requirements about when and how to use each.
It's a pretty darn good technique though, useful when your wire harness is going through some minor tension. Extensively used during our underwater robot build :)
I just don't want to see you burn your house down! :p

Not sure about the USB XBox controller support on Android though.
1A would be the sweet spot for future HDMI specs.
I also don't think the pi zero has a powerable HDMI adaptor.
Of course, some TVs might dump a lot more current over the connection, just like what was common with USB 2.0 going well over 500mA.
Even the first release of the device clearly mentioned it needing USB power. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRu18f2GRQo&t=41m22s
