No! These cables from the last time are still somewhere in the box, where they will probably stay forever. Giving my wallet a break, AND I'm a VMP so.......It looks like I'll have more just rotting away in their boxes.
@bph I used it in my car once after I forgot that I had stolen the cord from my car for something but still had the adapter. I had to prop it up on an old fast food cup but I was stuck in traffic and still able to call home because of it so it was worth the $2 I spent on it
@bph I have a ton of chargers that accept a USB and plug into 110V outlets, so prolly will use the there, though what I really needed was longer, charge -only cords for our Android tablets. But I do appreciate the unexpected gifting from Mediocre labs anyway, and will endeavor most stringently to find a good way for these to be useful.
I agree! Just the gesture these days of something actually given without strings attached made a great start to my stressed-out week of consumerism guised in the name of religion. Thanks Mediocre Labs for a not-so Meh act of kindness. Happy Holidays to you and your families!
@clarinetbob I wouldn't want to be the one who convinces you to buy more cables that don't work, but, while none of the bungie cables worked for me, the blue plastic keychains did. Though, they are oriented in the wrong direction.
@MsELizardBeth To clarify... Bought 4 of the bungee lightning cables - they do NOT charge my iPad Air at all...they charge the iPad Mini very slowly, and the charge the iPhone fine. To me, that's getting burned...when they were advertised as compatible/working. Great for you, though.
@clarinetbob Oh yeah... I don't own a single apple product other than an older cord that came in a pack of charge cables.... I'm probably going to give the lightning cable to the first person with an iPhone I meet.
@akhauri I thought that didn't sound like us…I looked into this for you and saw that the last message we sent you said "Hi, Each time you are responding we are simply getting a message that says “Sent from my iPad” with nothing else attached. Can you try logging in to your computer to respond perhaps?" Looks like for whatever reason we weren't getting your responses. Try responding again and we'll get this figured out with you.
Oh my ... VMP members ... gloating? 5 months of "dues" That's $25 bucks.... not to mention the CRAP that you bought each day/week/month to make your "VMP" worth it... meh.com can TOTALLY afford to give you this "free" for the $25 that you've already spent...for NOTHING... and the "sunk-costs" purchases you made... ... wise up
@unixrab So, let's get this straight. I buy something and pay $5 to have it shipped to me. It's still going to cost less than if I buy it elsewhere (even Woot). But if I check a box, I get free shipping on ALL OF THE OTHER THINGS I buy for the next month. But wait, there's more! I then get a free gift. So what if it's a crappy charger I'll probably never (or rarely) use. I got it free, while paying for another service that saves me a lot of money. My $25 spent being a VMP since launch has saved me from paying $125 in shipping charges in that same time frame. Cheer up sucker!
@unixrab dude. Seriously. What is your issue? Have a little fun, or at least don't be so miserable that you feel you have to try and take our fun away. To feel so drivven to educate us and spam about how crapy a sale site is, is trolling. Go enjoy life and let it go if you don't like it. FYI- I like the prouducts I have ordered. And I like having cheap gifts on hand.
@capguncowboy oh man... you have no idea... ...I may have my daughter comment... she's an expert! STAY TUNED! (of course... she may be entertained at your comment, especially the "troll thing correctly") .. ohhh I don't want to spoil it! ...((PS: for @jonT to say "we get it" ... ahhh well... "not doing the troll thing correctly?!?? U SIRIUS?" ... ok ))
@capguncowboy ooooohhh so much yes. (shh it's part of the "troll" thing [we have a code] ... .. uh... which.. I should not have told you... ignore this comment!!!!!) [I star yours tho] ;-) [[only a troll wouldn't star an opposing post!]] //that could be about 3 inception levels of trolling //
@unixrab ur just jelly of all my $$$$$. seriously though, I can't spend the shit fast enough, Meh is the only way I can get rid of it all without getting something I have to actually make space for. I just put a note on the door for the delivery man to keep the packages or throw them in my trash bin.
Tried to make my own phone stand box, following the mediocre steps on this website. Instructions unclear. Arterial blood spraying. Should I wait for free vmp shipment to see what I did wrong, or go hospital? I cannot see in color any more...
@ruouttaurmind Hey! @Barney gets to sleep, too! You think purple dinosaurs just spend their whole lives waiting for someone to mention a color on a forum? No way! They spend it singing to children and commenting here on their break.
@shawn You obviously don't know @unixrab like I do. He is not fun and likes to argue about things even though he has no proof or evidence on his side. He is relentless and never gives up no matter how much evidence you have that proves him wrong.
And to think that a couple months ago I was going to pay full price for these on toccs website! I was going to pay a full $19 dollars for 1! Glad to be getting them free since I am a VMP!! Thanks meh! I couldn't be any more meh-rrier! Early Meh-rry Christmas!
I got overly excited when I saw Irk on the box. I ordered a set. Then I got around to actually READING what the good (and twisted) people behind the motherboard of Meh.com had to say. Looks like I am due to receive a set free of charge... Curse you Meh for your insidious methods of withdrawing $5 worth of hard earned money from my checking account. And thanks for the free stuff too by the way I guess I should add.
You know, I bought them the first time they were on, didn't have any immediate use for them, never even opened the envelope and am not sure where they are now, and when I saw these I thought "OH MY GOD, how can I justify buying two more?" But then it turns out I don't have to! Because you're sending me some! Thank you for so efficiently enabling my hoarding tendencies and addressing my concerns before I even know what they are!
@unixrab what? I know I basically got my $5 back I put in in the first place but it could have been $0 back. It was more sensible to get VMP than pay $5 for shipping since I'm Christmas shopping here. I don't care if they mail me a box of poop fresh from the cows bum (which incidentally my brother bought a box from from cards against humanity, go figure). I'm a sucker for freebies. Probably because I've been so broke for over 4 years now a penny on the ground is like a gift from the gods. This is the only Christmas (Mehx-mas?) present this year I'm getting, and I'm damn glad to have it. Even if it is complete crap.
@ppujigi VMP가 어렵고, 힘든게, 아니구요. 물건 한개 구입하실때 가입하시면 됩니다. 구매하면서, VMP 한달분 5달러 가입하세요.. 이미 알고 계시지요 ? 한번을 구매하나, 한달을 VMP 하나, 동리한 5달러랍니다. 한달되기전에 알람 맞추시고, 사실 물건이 없으시면, 해지하시면 됩니다. my account인가 누르면, 몇일 남았다고 나오구요. 한달전에 해지하시면, 추가 비용 들지 않는답니다. 해지 않하시면, 자동으로 매달 5달러, 결제되시는거구요. 요즘, meh 마음이 가는것이 없어 아쉽네요. 하지만, jbl onbeat(?)인가는 1개 또는 2개 꼭ㄱ 구매해보시길.. 강추 물건이랍니다. 그럼..
As someone who has whined about the value (or lack thereof) of VMP status in the past, I appreciate this. On the one hand, Free Stuff! On the other, it's apparently very meh stuff! I appreciate yall being true to your mission.
I bought a pair of extra-long lightning cables from TOCCS via a groupon a while back that had a list price of $69/pair. $69 frikkin' bucks for 2 cables, but at least I only paid $15. However, for $69 list price, you'd think the damned things would be Apple-certified. NOPE! Don't work with my iPhone 6. Lame.
Well I am ever so grateful for the present but… I don’t understand how it will work? If it is short and not flexible… How do I use it? My USB ports are either in a hub or on the front of my computer. I have an iPhone 6 plus (now). Am I supposed to balance the phone on it on the hub or prop up the phone to usb level on the tower? Not to mention how to use it with the car or wall-port charger? Maybe it is illustrated in the picts but… No change here I can’t see them. Smile Tickled for the gift but baffled as to how it works. Grin
@RedHot LOL My kid, adopted at actually almost 10 (on paper 7 and lived with her birth family until about 6 - we still have contact, was born in a refugee camp, never saw electricity prior to me...) from a least developed nation was bitching about not having an iphone, how she hated me because I wouldn't buy her one and that she wanted to go back to her birth mom because her birth mom loved her enough to buy her one blah blah blah. I asked her where she'd plug one in in her home country - into a tree? She said in that tone of distain that teens have mastered, "Oh yeah. I forgot. But I'll figure something out and just because you made a good point don't think I still don't hate you!" LOL
Wait a second. Let me see if I've got this straight. These things have been on sale today for... let's see... almost 10 hours now. And, not one person has posted an OH/AWW SNAP picture??? I'm disappointed!
@lumpthar Well I suppose that would be the answer! I can’t figure out any other way? Been thinking and talking to my sister who looked at the picts. She is scratching her head too. Figured out the only place it would work is on the lap top port. That is the only one that faces the right direction and is already on a parallel surface.
@Kidsandliz Fewwww Thanks for shedding a dapple of light on what @RedHot said. I again was perplexed as to my first world problems again! My third world problem would be what am I going to sharpen this with and how to attach it to my spear! Or how do I make this tiny thing carry water to my home or much less electrical power to the intended device. As said in another thread maybe I could pick my teeth with it.
I got the email notifying me of my VMP gift two minutes before they went live on the site. Very thoughtful of you Meh! I've only spent $15.00 and now I've got some cables I can gift (or stick in my emergency bag) and a sweet t-shirt that fits perfectly. I'm happy.
@lisaviolet Well, if we want to get technical, the object of my original statement was 'that' which obviously referred to the iPad mini. The attempt to twist the wording and push off your goatness on me most certainly has earned you a nomination for another month. But I guess that's what goats do... they twist.
So I think it's about time for y'all to offer some cheap (but fully functional and meaningfully durable) USB extension cables, so as to make these little snappers all the more useful. In fact, @lisaviolet, I'm blaming you that this hasn't already happened.
Cool, I can always use an extra cable. I'll toss them in my travel bag, and next time I'm stuck in the airport or something and someone forgets to pack their power cord for their phone, I have a solution! Free, so if they turn out to be crap, I shrug and say "Oh sorry, guess it's broken." Sweet, thanks Meh! (And yes, I know, gristle. Get fresh spam, dipshit.)
@jont and others, I ordered the max amount (and got two for free, thanks!) now i'm about to pass them out to folks at work and I can't tell the difference between usb and lightning without opening the box. or, can I? Is there something I'm missing on the box that tells them apart?
Dear meh, I was working from a cafe today, with my laptop tethered to my phone because cafes here are too hip for wifi. My phone got down to 1% and I had no charger. I was juuust about to walk to a phone store to by an overpriced USB cable when I remembered "I've got that useless meh usb deal on my keychain!"
Just the day before, I had thought "I never use this doohickey, I really should get rid of it and free up VALUABLE PANTS POCKET SPACE." How wrong I was.
First time I used it, and I had rigged an entirely dodgy support under my phone with a napkin to make my laptop and phone usb ports line up at the same height. Thanks to this meh-tastic usb thing, I was able to continue on as a productive member of society.
