    Link: Hey Apple, Your Charger Cables Suck - You think with the amount of money they ask for their merchandise, Apple could be a little less stingy with cable length

    Bit silly to have sockets above average adult head height.

    I found a 10` cable online that works great. It was only $5 or $10. None of the phone cables that come with phones are ever more than 4`.

    You`d think that because they charge a lot that you should get more? LOL, no. I don`t think that. It`s Apple.

    LOL! Mine`s 38", but it`s not a problem for me because I`m smart enough to loop it around the phone so it can just hang from the wall socket.

    My guess it`s an iPhone because 1) the cord is white, 2) it connects to the bottom, and 3) the guy`s obviously an idiot which means he would pay $299 for a phone that won`t do anything that my $28 Android phone won`t do (anything useful, that is).

    Sockets are sometimes that high up in public areas for Health and Safety reasons.

    Sometimes they put sockets up high in areas prone to flooding, so that in the event of a flood, the wiring should hopefully be above water level.

    ATTN: Everyone

    Does anyone here have a Charger Plate?
    I`m wondering how well those things really work.
    Does it take long time?
    Worth the cost?

    I figured you for a gullible fanboy. I bought two 6` HDMI cables for $3.99 each from NewEgg, and they work just fine. Sucker.

    @jendrian What? Samsung use Miro USB B in all their current smart phones. I`m GSII owner and modifier, and why they may have once used proprietary bullpoo they don`t any more.

    We sell ten foot and six foot cables of all colors... People just need to know where to look. We are also getting 20 foot and 30 foot cables just for the novelty of it. Dock extenders too! lol

    The cable length would be of little concern to me when a lightning bolt was three inches to the right of my head

    Why is the socket so high? What can Apple do about bad user design of the airports?
    leave Apple alone.
