You guys ever notice how shoddily made Apple cables are? After a few months of use, many of them start fraying where the cable meets the connector, and need warranty replacement.

It’s virtually indestructible.

Toss your frayed, tangled iPhone charger in the garbage; it’s time for an upgrade. The Titan is wrapped twice in industrial-grade, flexible steel and packs permanently-sealed USB and Lightning connectors that won’t be falling apart in this century, or the next. With an Apple-approved certification, the Titan is tough on all types of outside elements from electricity spikes to happy puppies looking for a chew toy.

– Wrapped in two layers of flexible, high-strength steel
– Includes sealed one-piece housing fused directly over the cable to keep the connectors in place
– Certified w/ Apple’s MFi program for safe charging
– Made to last for life
– Backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty

The 3.25ft cable normally costs $35, but with today’s deal you only have to pay $24.99.

Whenever you’re charging your phone next to your laptop, there’s a good chance it’s just laying flat on the table as you work.

The ‘Bobine’ Flexible iPhone Charging Dock is a flexible, yet sturdy cable that can be bent and reconfigured in any number of shapes so you can easily make FaceTime calls, see notifications as they come in, or even use your iPhone as a second screen for whatever reason you want. It’s made of nickel-plated steel, and should last longer than the phone it’ll help charge and sync.

Parting Fools From Their Money: $5,500 AudioQuest Diamond Cat-6 ‘Directional’ Ethernet Cable

diamond_rje_l_1

You want that MP3 to sound even better? Got some crazy sound system and you want to make sure you get the best possible sound from it? Why not turn to AudioQuest’s Diamond line of Ethernet cables? Their CAT-6 cables come with silver-plated plugs are actually directional! Wowsers!

AudioQuest’s Diamond RJ/E is a directional Ethernet cable made with the same hallmark materials, philosophy, care and attention that is applied to all their interconnects, whether it’s an entry level introduction to hi-fi or a died-in-the-wool music connoisseur. Another upgrade with Diamond is a complete plug redesign, opting for an ultra-performance RJ45 connector made from silver with tabs that are virtually unbreakable. The plug comes with added strain relief and firmly lock into place ensuring no critical data is lost.

All audio cables are directional. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest audio cable. Arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality. For best results have the arrow pointing in the direction of the flow of music. For example, NAS to Router, Router to Network Player.

Directional cables… right. Because we only need to send data, and never receive any. Because bits of data can be “lost” at the interconnect. Sure.

Ugh… this is so depressing, because you know full well that some poor sod is going to buy some of these, and then totally “hear” the difference. And you know how much he’ll pay? How about $5,500 for 26ft. of the thing? And if you think that’s a lot, you should check out the company’s $13,500 52ft. HDMI cable.
