‘Early Adapter: USB-C enters, riding a MacBook’

gold-macbook-usbc-edge

Over on the SuperSite, where I play the role of “trying to talk about Apple to an audience that doesn’t particularly like Apple,” I wrote this week about the USB-C transition and how it means we are all going to be carrying more adapters with us wherever we go.

Writing the piece also gave me a chance to name-drop SCSI, ADB, Mac Serial, and a host of other old Apple connection technologies from the days when Apple never saw a weird, proprietary technology it didn’t like. As well as the bizarre micro-DVI adapter I had to buy for the original MacBook Air.
