And just think, it only took them ~20 years to think, “maybe it should plug in both ways!”
Not for much longer! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvjrT4aSCfc
Fun fact from the Help Desk:
The ‘seam’ on a USB plug will always face down. Here’s a handy illustration: http://petapixel.com/2012/02/24/plug-in-usb-cables-correctly-the-first-time-by-observing-the-seam/
I hope that helps alleviate some frustration. I enjoy your comics and wish you both the best, or continued mishaps, whichever ways gets me more comics!
But then there’s the vertical USB slots…
That may be because you appear to be plugging that into a memory card port
I plug it in and put a dot of nail polish on the top, and forever more I have no problem plugging it in.
I heard they were working on a new USB standard which would work in either orientation. We can dream can’t we…
I work in either orientation 😉
The USB-Interface is another fine example of quatum mechanics! The interface itself got 2 states which both of them exist at the same time. Only by observation one state becomes the real one.

That happens quite a bit for me…
