    I bought this one in Poundland today (for £1 should you be wondering), and it doesn't even work. Premium HDMI cables from now on..

    Good old poundland. Such failure right there. I'd guess someone in the factory got a little bored and decided to do a funny.

    I wouldn't be surprised if - despite the not-so-serious nature of this thread - people still manage to spread misinformation about "digital signals".

    Nothing to worry about, a doubled over tinfoil hat will resist their advancements in technology.

    Cleaning products and school notebooks.

    Plus it was the first time I'd EVER been in one (having been shielded from life by island living). It was AMAZING.

    You paid £1 to tell us this? Couldn't you have just taken a photo of it in the store if you found it so funny.
