@lichme Curious, are you related to the Lich King?
– from yesterday’s Casemates’ writeup:
“This typically refers to three elven sisters: Alleria, Vereesa, and Sylvanas Windrunner. While Alleria and Vereesa are considered heroes, Sylvanas was killed and brought back to life by an undead knight named Arthas, who would later become known as the Lich King. Despite breaking free of his influence, Sylvanas was forever changed and took leadership of undead abandoned by both the Lich King and the rest of the world.”
Now that Meh has speaker docks with lightning connectors, it’s pretty clear that lightning connectors are about to be retired by apple, in favor of their new, entirely incompatible “improved” connectors.
For which you’ll have to buy all new chargers, docks, and stuff. Yay apple.
@shahnm As noted elsewhere (another post), that shit is for barbarians. Qi to charge. And Bluetooth for everything else. Both of which, btw, are delightfully not proprietary. Why would I mess with cables and connectors if I don’t have to?
I purchased my X Max over a month ago and have yet to plug in a micro (and use earphones, headphones and speakers with it daily). And I very rarely charge other than by Qi (the little door over the charge port is still stiff as fuck from disuse, and I mean to keep it that way), with shit I bought here and at Morningsave.
Though, point taken about Apple and their needing to be special (ftr, I’m all in with Apple, but I don’t deny their fuckery). But, hey, at least it’s better than that 30-pin bullshit.
@kfdavila Well, if it is plugged in, sure. Speedwise, a bit slower than normal (Power Output: 2.0A, 5V DC per spec). On batteries, I’d have to guess no. Even if it did, you’d be mad to burn real batteries to charge a phone.
@kfdavila It’s not abysmal, but for the most part a decent lightning cable and non-ebay-ultracheap brick will charge about twice as fast for less than this. This would allow you to have it sit upright at your desk while you listen to tunes on your wireless earphones though.
OMG how old is this thing? That’s an iPhone 5 in the photos — the oldest possible phone with a Lightning port. And let’s not even talk of that version of iOS, because no one wants to hear the S Word return from the dead.
@PocketBrain@TheFLP@Zebra I was kind of joking by saying “the last”. I should have said “last of the decent-sounding really cheap…” There’s plenty of Lightning-connector speaker docks out there, including this old classic
THD of 10% or should I say HTD of 10%?
This is wrong it reminds me of the Panama papers.
It’s way to high much like the greed of the people hiding money at Mossack Fonseca. It’s astronimically high like the secretary who was on 10,998 Board of directors at various companies…
I wonder how good her Roberts rule of order were?
Motherfuckers. Goddamnit. It’s about fucking time. Where y’all been hiding this shit? What the fuck took you so long?
Of course I won’t be buying; I seem to always get this crap in fuckos or irks or whatever the fuck we’re calling them these days. I just appreciate the fact that meh is still meh. And I like to bitch about shit, just because.
(Composed especially for a customer–though I’m not quite enough of an asshole to tag the malodorous, mammering, bubble-spleened, beetle-headed, boily-assed clotpole.)
Great, threw away box (Apts have daily trash valet here) and finally had time to set it up today, only to find out it DOES NOT POWER ON. Did all the trouble shooting, guess I got a defective unit/15 dollar door stop.
