The upcoming USB cable design is reversible, has no right-side-up or upside-down problems, and will click when you plug it in. Expect the new design on the market as soon as this year.

No doubt with the ubiquity of USB ports in current devices it’s going to a long, slow transition, but I can’t wait. Now, I wonder when the MacBook Pro is going to get one…
