    A couple of months I bought a USB hub. Apparently it is extremely rare (hinted at by the Japanese/Chinese language on the box art) and I have no idea about the model/brand of it. Anyhow, turns out the USB cable, which is one of those "cool looking" transparent ones, is rusty. It was rusty when I bought it.

    The actual connectors have rust on them. It creeps me out. I'm so gonna get a new cable ASAP.

    It freaks me out that we live in a world where rare USB hubs made by unspecified Japanese or Chinese companies could ship with a SUB-PAR USB CABLE!!!

    In short, I don't know why I posted this.

    USB hubs in general are not rare.

    Cheap-ass products sold by lowest-cost sellers might be individually rare per model, but collectively they are abundant.
