I ran across my first USB Type-C connector today as I set up a new USB hub for my laptop in our new office. I won’t actually use it on my computer, but I’d heard about them in the new MacBooks, so it was a good time to check out what they’re really all about. Sounds like we’ll be seeing more and more of these over the next few years.
You are probably very familiar with USB. If you have a PC, you have probably used a USB flash drive, or maybe you have connected a printer with USB. If you have an Android phone then you will be familiar with USB as the way to charge your phone, or as the way you transfer data to and from the phone. USB has been around for a long time.
