I was hoping that you could name just one commercially available USB
cable that was not usable for USB 2.0

Somehow I can't imagine how unimportant that question is.... But, if you want me to pick you up a few of them from the cheap computer swap shops here in Taipei I'll get a few and send them to you. While I'm at it, I'll even get you some cheap CDs or DVDs that produce coasters 5-10% of the time.
I've made my share of coasters but that is an entirely separate topic.
No, it isn't.

There are substandard products everywhere one looks. And there are products that were built to satisfy a given standard but don't pass muster when the standard is updated. You just seem bent on trying to have Tim name a given product that will work on USB 1.0 but won't work on USB 2.0. Frankly, it is boring.

I don't doubt that there are cables out there that work perfectly well with USB 1.0 and fail with USB 2.0. Just like I don't doubt that there are 10BaseT cables that work just fine at 10Mbps and not so good at 100Mbps....because I have experienced that end of the spectrum. But, I don't have to see them and touch them to know they exist.

They exist. And, frankly, having been on the hardware end of manufacturing super computers, I could tell you some wonderful stories about coaxial cables used in the Control Data Cyber 205. But, you probably won't believe me either.

Oh, that that "supervisor" that wasn't concerned or wouldn't even consider a cable problem is just plan...well how can I put it...ahhh....wrong. But, tell you what....you can go on believing what you will. But, it is truly unimportant why you are trying to "prove". So, whatever.....
