How Legacy Compatibility Cripples

USB3Cable

Say hello to the hideous new USB 3.0 cable your new smartphone or tablet will come with

That’s just … wow.

Did Apple get things right with lightening? When they first showed it off, I thought it was the stupidest thing in the world to do, to introduce a new proprietary connection. But now I’m convinced Apple’s people saw this new microUSB connector and cried tears of blood.

Sometimes it’s best to just throw away the damned past!

    That thing is horrible. I have an external drive which uses a USB3 connector and it is fiddly as hell to connect. No question the Lightning connector is way easier to use.
