Why is the new USB-C – port of the future
A few days ago Apple introduced the new MacBook, which caused a storm of emotions, both negative and positive, its golden color, obscenities characteristics and with just one port. It is called USB Type-C, or simply USB-C, and promises to transform the device to which we are accustomed to something new.
Future with laptops that have only one entrance – not counting the headphone jack – it’s like an aquarium with octopus tentacles on one. Frightening and disturbing. How to charge it? As it is now connected to it here it’s all?
It just matters, but they can respond USB-C. And knowing the manner of Apple push revolutionary ports and adapters, will not despair too soon.
Immediately after having been submitted to Apple MacBook with this connector Type-C, the producers periphery began to focus on him. LaCie announced an updated series of hard drives Porsche Desigh Mobile Drive. Now they will be issued with a new connector USB Type-C, but with an interface USB 3.0, which is much slower than USB 3.1.
New hard drives from LaCie with USB-C will come with the adapter cable allows you to connect drives for laptops with the usual USB 2.0 connectors and 3.0. On the shelves a new hard drive will be available in late June.
What is a USB-C, or USB Type-C?
Plug (or plug or jack, or as you call it) USB-C size corresponds to the micro-USB (8,4 mm to 2,6 mm), but is to turn around. Like Lightning connector from Apple, you can stick it upside down, and you’ll get. In the dark, it is very useful, it is not necessary to understand what’s inside the magic plug that does not fit sometimes even the third time.
He works as a regular USB?
He works as a USB on steroids. Firstly, it charges: USB-C may conduct bi-directional flow of energy. It can be used for the primary charging device for charging or peripheral. It can also cope with heavy loads, delivering 20V 5A (100 W). More than enough to charge a laptop or several mobile devices simultaneously.
USB-C is also faster than our current standard USB-B. Data can be transferred at da 10 Gbit/s, and if you have an adapter, USB-C will be compatible with older standards USB. Currently the fastest devices with USB Type B transmits data at a rate twice as less.
How to connect all that I need, to a laptop? The port is one.
But for this you will need an adapter. Apple already offers several options: USB-C – USB ($19), USB-C – HDMI and USB – VGA (both for $79). DisplayPort, Ethernet, SD-card adapters and other standard connectors will be available soon, as from Apple, as well as from third-party manufacturers.
However, Apple is betting that in the future you will have less and less of the things that need to connect to your computer, thanks to the spread of wireless networks, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Wireless headphones can already hear a lot of wireless speakers, portable devices are likely to be wireless and wireless charging.
USB-C – one of the marketing ploys Apple. I hate Apple.
Whatever your opinion about the company and its products, USB-C – not just another proprietary connector from Apple. This new standard, widely used in the industry, and very soon we will see a flood of devices with USB-C. Just the new MacBook from Apple – the first consumer notebook that runs on USB-C.
Who else uses the USB-C at the moment?
In addition to the above LaCie, even Sandisk makes a 32-gigabyte flash drive with this type of USB. Hard Drive from LaCie out of 500 GB, 1 TB or 2 TB.http://szlifestyle.com/sz/2015/03/15/why-is-the-new-usb-c-port-of-the-future/https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/sz_apple-usb-c.jpg?fit=640%2C410https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/sz_apple-usb-c.jpg?resize=150%2C150TECH NEWSApple,MacBook,Technology,usbA few days ago Apple introduced the new MacBook, which caused a storm of emotions, both negative and positive, its golden color, obscenities characteristics and with just one port.
