How many times have you gone to plug in a USB device and it won’t go in. You flip it over and by some unimaginable reason it still won’t go in. Yet again you flip and sure enough it fits this time! Well, you won’t have to deal with such things for much longer with the new USB Type C connector. The new connector type is completely reversible so you will always get it on the first try. The problem is that it’s going to take a little while for it to be completely commonplace. Motherboard manufacturer ASRock is trying to help push things along with the first ever USB 3.1 and Type C ready motherboard. Once the motherboard manufacturers get on board then it’s much easier to make a change like this go mainstream.
