ubergeeknz:katietommo: My iPhone 5 cable 'stopped working', but then after buying a new cable I found out that that didn't work either and the actual problem was a lot of fluff and dust in the port. I got that out using tweezers and now both cables work fine.
Good point, that can happen with microusb as well. Personally i think ports need to be done away with entirely, there is just no need for them any more.
Except for those who know that Wireless Charging was actually invented by the NSA as a backdoor into all of out data for monitoring. Just wait for the next law to be passed mandating Wireless Charging for all portable devices :)
