Looks like it's intended to be the USB answer to the Lightning dock.

That, in itself, is a pain in the proverbial, the connectors are so fragile and get filled with crap incredibly easily. (one co-worker walked over to my desk a few days ago and asked my why I was digging in the bottom of my iphone with a toothpick. She's got a Samsung. - she was impressed when I showed her the navel's worth of fluff that I'd dug out of my phone)

New FWP - people in offices will go from tooth- and nose-picking to iphone-picking.
Okay, it's a bit less gross.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I read about folks antropomorphizing their smartphones..it is epidemic. So, it is logical instead of picking (and collecting) lint from their belly-buttons they moved to collecting lint from their cells. At least they don't sell it on ebay yet...the lint, I mean. I forgot how much a jar of belly button lint went for, ick.

I wish somebody picked lint from my tech stuff, I don't have any time.

My real FWP is...I gotta cook and I am out of ideas, just finished the term, it was laborious.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I came home to find that one o' the Mutts has committed Grand Theft Cookie Jar. As in, around a kilo of butter cookies have been consumed.

I don't have enough evidence to determine who the culprit is. Hooligan has means (as in the brains to work out the details of the crime), but Heffalump has motive (as in, a bottomless appetite.)

Ergo, Sippenhaft: Both are going without dinner tonight.


FWP: OH is working from home today. Of course he didn't hear, see, or notice a thing.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The jacuzzi bathtub in my hotel room is out of order, the alternative room offered is on a lower floor and doesn’t have as nice a view.

Jacuzzi or view??

I know, I was being facetious. I love not knowing what to cook and just waiting for magic to happen under my hands, hahahah...

Which reminds me - it is leek, spuds and egg soup, white butter beans, egg plant next week, I think. I can't get enough of veggies, my FWP.

And another one - my amazing black cuissardes have a hole.

Clementines might be good for me, but eating them does not make me happy like eating chocolate chip cookies does.

I bought 2 kilos of ultra sour clementines and 2 kilos of ultra sour oranges. Now I have to eat them.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

We started making juice out of the ultra sour clementines and oranges...my wrist hurts. Aside of the juice giving us electric shock how sour it is - are juicers worth the investments? Another clunky machine?
