In the past, Nintendo has been synonymous with baffling business decisions and out-of-touch thinking.

If you, like me and several other Kotaku staff, have run into a consistent left Switch JoyCon signal issue, don't worry: Nintendo says it isn't in fact a hardware problem, but a "manufacturing variation". The company also says to contact them for a fix if you're running into the problem.
While I would never recommend taking your console or controller apart (unless your son lodged something in the drive) plenty of people seem to be having minor issues with JoyCon connectivity. If you're handy with a screwdriver, this might be a decent solution.
