I'm sure I already posted about this once, but I can't find the post . . . . . never mind . . . . .
A new USB cable is born:
I am puzzled as to why this amazing development took so long to be implemented: in retrospect, it seems so bleeding obvious that
EITHER you make a plug that visibly ONLY goes into the socket one way (and USB A is notorious for causing fumbling because it is NOT clear which way up it goes into the socket) -
OR you make a plug that doesn't care, a much simpler prospect from the user's point of view . . . .
Well, you know the routine: soon we will all be using this one. No, you don't really have a choice.
