re: #185 teleskiguy

I still need to buy an all-in-one dongle. Right now I can’t even plug my iPhone Xr into my new computer. Now I know what everyone was talking about when Apple deep sixed the port holes, save for Lightning. I know they want to make these things as sleek as possible, but c’mon! I’ll sacrifice a little thickness for a goddamn USB port.

I’ll be looking around at Target later today, for that, and a suitable carrying case.

Well, there’s good news and bad news re that particular problem on the latest gen of Macs.

The good news is that you can buy an adaptor for the “Thunderbolt” (USB 3) port so as to able to use a regular (rectangular) USB plug on anything so equipped.

The bad news (unsurprisingly) is that you HAVE to either buy the adaptor, or else replace all your existing devices with USB 3-compatible ports…..
