Fuck the assholes who cheap out on cables that come with a product by making them power-only.

@brandon I was just thinking about this! I was contemplating tossing all the random cables out.

@MrDers @brandon

If you charge a device at a public USB outlet, you should be happy to have a cable without data lines! They are a safety feature!

I have marked my power only cables with red cable ties.

@rudolf @brandon I love the cable tie idea.

I can't think of any reason I would need to use a public charger. Aside from that, Android defaults to charge only in the OS. Maybe that's not real protection?

@rudolf @MrDers That's a good idea, I should probably mark all of these to make sure I know lol. that's the biggest pain for me
