Am I the only one who has visions of the dude that invented the USB plug wringing his hands like Mr. Burns and cackling, “This will really piss them off! Muhahahahahah!” What sort of sadistic SOB would design a plug with no indication on the outside which way is up, but will fit into the USB port in one way?
My computer’s USB ports are so snug fitting that half the time I think I have the plug the wrong way, even if it’s right. What we need to do is complete get away from the USB plugs we have today and move to something like the Double U designed by Ma Yi Xuan. This USB plug will work no matter what direction you cram it into that port.
The thing has two connectors inside and the one that isn’t needed is just pushed out of the way as you slip the plug into the port on your computer. This needs to be put onto the market yesterday.
