Hi,

As the topic asks. Where can I buy a white USB cable from? It's for my printer. Every shop I've been to has the ugly beige or black. Currently I have a clear one with the light at each end of the connection but I would reallly love a white one for my iMac.

Cheers. :D

I'd love to know too -- I've searched and not turned up many results.

Also keen on a place to get a 'Apple white' Firewire 400 cable too!

Thanks. For $99 I think I'll stick to what I've got.

Dudes, the Apple Online store sells both of those, check it out!

And the IEEE 1394a cables are the thin and bendy kind, in two lengths!

(Edit) $99? They were only $40 for the 1.8M last time I checked...maybe I was on the US store...

err... I think michaelvjsmyth was joking, refering to the perception that Apple overprice everything they sell... they should run a marxist business, screw capitalism. Profits are for loosers

*cough*

I was clicking around the site earlier, and decided to take a look at a few of the websites listed under people's sig's etc..

I clicked on creativeshed's link, to www.creativeshed.com (http://www.creativeshed.com/), I see a link to a section on cables (http://www.creativeshed.com/cables.htm), and having just read this thread, I give it a bash and what do I see: A picture of a White USB Cable!!

They might be worth a try to see if they stock any.. looks like they're based in Wooloongong so they could probably post.

Good luck!

I was at an Apple Centre the other day and saw the Apple cables and thought "Hey, I might get a couple so that everything matches" until I saw the price. $30-60 for a cable is a joke.

How about painting cables?

I would imagine that something like Plasti Dip (a flexible synthetic rubberised paint) would work very well. About $25-30 for a $429mL can - should last you ages if you just paint cables.

And yes, it does come in white.

Why don't we just call creativeshed and see if they sell white cables?
