The Cable Guy

If you’re anything like me you balk at the idea of paying more than $50 for a cable that cost about $2 to make. It’s ridiculous. All the testing suggests that cheap cables are as effective as “gold plated” cables for carrying your data.

I’ve been looking for a cheap Optical audio cable to go with my cheap HDMI cables picked up via a nice discount online vendor on a special. This cheap online vendor – Oznetics – has cables at reasonable prices all year round – if by reasonable you mean under $20 including delivery. And currently has a great special on HDMI cables to boot.

They also sell a bunch of home automation stuff. Which is what I’d be doing if:

a) I owned my own house, or

b) We weren’t saving all our spare change for college.

Optical audio here we come…

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.
