USB Type-C ports VIDEO Explanation
USB Type-C is the single omni-port on Apple's new MacBook. That and the ensuing outcry of dongle outrage. But don't let that sour you to the idea of USB Type-C because it really is fantastic—at least if you have more than one.
Here is a quick, down-and-dirty primer of what makes USB Type-C so great:
It's reversible, like Apple's Lightning cable. No more fumbling to plug it in the right way.
It can transfer data at up to 10 Gbps—i.e. 10 times your crazy Google Fiber connection per second. (If you have Google Fiber, I hate you forever.)
It can do video. Forget specialized video ports like DisplayPort and HDMI (eventually anyway) because Type-C can do that too. And in both directions. A single cable could carry video from phone to PC or PC to phone. Or to TVs, tablets, you name it.
