The recently announced Type-C USB port on the new MacBook and the new Chromebook Pixel is a big deal.
Here are some of its features:
- It’s reversible; right-side-up, or upside-down, it doesn’t matter
- It’s fast: 10 Gbps
- It works for Video
- It can be used to deliver power (up to 100W)
- It’s open – anyone can include it in their equipment
- Compatible with old USB (with an adapter)
- It’s small – it will likely make its way into phones as well as PC’s
Finally - I just hope it takes off!
