    Nice link. Other gadget stuff to.
    Think Ill buy 2 USB cables, cut the wrong ends off, strip the wires, splice 'em together, and slap a male-to-female adapter on one end.

    Wonder if it will work...

    As long as you use cables that charge the phone, it will work fine.

    Obviously. But what is so different? A USB cable is 4 four wires and a shield. I'm using a standard Verizon issue charging cable (which should be a standard 5 pin mico USB), plugged into the female adapter of my ghetto cable.
    If I cut off the end of my charging cable, there will be 4 wires, red, black, white, and green. There is not alot of "wiring" going on BETWEEN the ends of a USB cable.

    I think it's a voltage loss due to insufficient wire gage. But if you have an answer, please share. I wont this to work, damn it!

    I forget what the difference is. There's a short between two of the wires or something. Google should be able to elucidate it.

    The voltage drop is at the spices. If you really want a proper looking ghetto cable, get a 10' section of 18/4 and some beanies.

    Dude, just buy a cable. The time you're spending on this has to be worth something.

    The point of this is being able to do it.
    Not sure about the cat5, so, by all means, try it out if you have some.

    Nope. Worth nothing. And it's not about the money.
