"Users will no longer need to be concerned with plug orientation/cable direction, making it easier to plug in." ...That's a goddamn life changer right there: 50% of the time I try to plug in a USB cord, I fail every time.

Yup... First try to plug USB cable in, it fails, turn it around, fail multiple times, turn it back around and then it goes in. It's quite annoying when you try to connect something and dont see the USB-port.

yea i agree guys. they are about 15 years beind everyone else.

just make a damn plug that I dont have to fail 50% of the time to plug in.
make it visually distinctive which end goes where. its not friggin rocket science.

I do that all the time as well... .
1. Push it and fail.
2. Turn it around, push but it fails to go in again
3. Turn around again and it goes in perfect. WTF!

That's just because the USB port is four dimensional instead of three dimensional

The only connector needed across all devices is another huge change. Would this possibly replace HDMI?

This is true, I'm not convinced that it is possible to plug in a USB without flipping it at least twice.

Mini-USB is fine, but there is like 50 variants.

Make it an octagonal head design so we have to fail 16 times before getting it right.

Can't believe they are finally gonna do it.. no more plug orientation, and possibly a one connection to rule them all? Let's all forget HDMI,Display port, Esata and all the other stuff and start dreaming about a simple connection that a baby can plug in capable of transferring anything....

Thank god they've finally realized it needs to be improved.

I always thought USB 3.0 connectors were some kind of a sick joke. They're huge compared to Thunderbolt, and the side that goes to the device often has a bulky and ugly extension part, I know it's for compatibility reasons, but come on, can't it be a bit more aesthetically presentable? Also, the cables for USB 3.0 suck too, they're thick and so inflexible. Just looking at this stuff makes me feel like I'm in the mid-90es or something.
