Great. The “Too cheap to upgrade bundle.” Thanks again for reminding me that my current situation doesn’t allow me to become a voracious consumer, willing and able to spend ONE FUCKING THOUSAND DOLLARS on the latest phone technology that won’t make my life even one iota better or worse than it is now, but would definitely allow me to do my part to hasten the demise of the only habitable planet that we as humans can access.
@hotrodder@jmbunkin I am with @hotrodder. Bean counters took over, instituted a higher price point -> some nonsense justification based on more expensive features + marketing to convince you that you want it. Infinite revenue growth forever.
… You’re saying that women don’t line up to hear angry rants about consumerism and the corruptive pressures intrinsic in human nature that are leading us surely into an inescapable darkness?
@luv4stephen@warpedrotors It also looks like it was thawed out while in a vertical orientation, and it is too big for that box. The delivery guy appears to be hiding a pony tail.

@phendrick Yeah, I would like to know this too…it’s kinda worth it if I get 4 of those, but if there’s only two, then I’m not gonna buy the whole bundle of junk just for them, since those are all I’m interested in.
I like those little chargers – handy to carry (I’ve used mine several times for my smart watch, which always seems to go dead when I’m not watching) and the flashlight is also convenient.
So I’m in. Rest of the stuff is fodder for garage sales.
I’m not cheap enough for this bundle. My phone is one of those new fangled USB-C contraptions without a headphone jack, so everything in this bundle is useless to me. Except the lenses, but I stupidly already bought a similar set from morningsave.
@Oneroundrobb Odds are then that your phone’s camera has much higher resolution, and a decent optical zoom, meaning these lenses would turn the otherwise reasonably decent photos your phone takes into a blurry vignetted mess with plenty of chromatic aberration for good measure.
Ha! I still have a 6 (only went from 4 to 5 to 6 to get bigger screen and I’d do it again if I could get a Pixel-sized screen and don’t @me about switching to Android). And my daughter has/had a 6 but she liked to keep it in back pocket and it went into toilet and freshly bricked. Sigh.
I’d buy it for the chargers, but the rest of the stuff is just junk. I know I had the lenses fall apart on me when I took them out of the box to test them! And I have an iphone7…so the case would be trash. And…umm yeah. Hard pass thanks, but no thanks.
