USB Type-C: One cable to connect them all

The USB C is a game changer for everyone. We will all eventually have to replace all of our equipment - including external hard drives and monitors. The primary advantage of the USB c is that you can string (serially connect) up to 8 devices off of one port. This is similar in principle to the old SCSI connector. I’m sure that someday they’re going to replace all interface connections with fiber optic - as soon as they figure out how to make them unbreakable so that users can step on them, twist them, tie them in knots, and kink them.

By now you're probably aware of a new USB connector coming on stream, called USB Type-C. Maybe you even have one. I don't yet. The following article is a bit old, so you may have already read it some time ago. But, if you haven't, and have a technical interest in learning more about this new connector, it is a good article....Jim Hamm
