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.
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?
@MrDers @brandon KISS:No data wireNo dataNo hack
@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
