Windows 7: 10 technologies that will transform PCs in 2015 and beyond

I'm amazed by the number of people who have trouble figuring out which way to insert a USB connector. It's not rocket science. At worst, one has a 50/50 chance of getting it right the first time and should get it right in no more than two tries.

After seeing the ipads hologram keyboard I thought that would be the next craze ?
Ironman uses it plus a bunch of other movies,
But of course movies are magic

And we all know that actors are good at "grasping things out of thin air"

Only exceeded by imagination of a young child

As the vision declines with age, those markings become difficult to see.
Anyway, we really need two dots. One on the plug. Another on the socket. My sockets have no markings of any kind.

My eyes have trouble seeing that mark on the USB cables in dim light especially the black ones. I don't think my old eyes are going to get any better.

I use a system of different color dots on both ends so I know what they are. On the horizontal plugs all is well on the vertical plugs I stick a dot on the proper side of the plug. I also keep a list of the color codes. Works for me.

Hi there

agreed on that one -- also if some of your gear is in an awkward position it's not easy to see even if they ARE marked and connect correctly.

As for not being "Rocket science" -- a lot of things are like that but people still get into a muddle.

Cheers

The new connectors will certainly help. They will be an improvement.
I just never thought of it as a problem before.

I like the usb connector idea.
One one of my computers the back is troublesome to get to.
On other computer is so high I have to use a stool to use the usb ports.

If I could just install the usb connector either way would be handy but not a game braker.
