New super-fast USB cables won't mind which way you plug them in. The new USB C standard promises to make problems with USB plugins a thing of the past. They plug in either way, and are as fast as USB 3.0. I want them on all my devices, now. I don't mind a Micro or Mini version for my phones and tablets; but, it is long past the time that we threw away proprietary connections. Are you listening, Apple?
