Overpriced HDMI cables
Being overcharged for phone storage
Productivity tablets without keyboards
- You can buy very cheap HDMI cables that are worthless. Very thin cables don't work or don't work well. Look for cables that have the gold part molded securely to the end of the cable. Be aware that very long cables may not work with your application. My MacBook will not display onto a TV with a cable longer than 6'.
- Forget buying a SmartPhone with less than 64 GB's of storage. It will not have enough storage for even basic needs regardless of how thrifty you are with your apps, pictures, and songs. SmartPhones that have the ability to access an micro SD card are becoming rare. One of the reasons I bought a Samsung Galaxy S5 was the ability to add a SD card. The new and improved S6 no longer has that feature. Storing things on a micro SD card are not as straight forward as storing things on the internal storage of your SmartPhone. Certain applications refuse to work with a micro SD card such as Amazon Prime video.
