me: okay i think i've finally worked out all the different standards and varieties of USB
pass the WUSB brah
"the one thing i didn't like about USB ports is how they physically exist"
-- literally nobody
waiting fore FireWireless
@lynnesbian tbh cables are bad
@lynnesbian FireWire more like FireBune
@lynnesbian please clap
@lynnesbian please share your thoughts over IEEE 1337 a.k.a. FediWire
@lynnesbian I'm so sorry
i love it omg
@lynnesbian I think Apple hates ports in general, USB included.
Ports add too much usability.
@lynnesbian they probably saw the usb-b 3.0 and then that reaction is understandeable
@lynnesbian I suppose they're unhappy that Bluetooth is finally working well enough to be useful for day-to-day stuff
@lynnesbian Any word on how fast I can charge my phone via WUSB?
@lynnesbian fuck oh no is this real because apple is absolutely gonna remove the the last port on the phone when this comes out
@xenon it's real but it's effectively abandoned, the linux kernel removed support for it recently iirc
hand me the wUSB
@wdtz one day, instead of sharing files by copying them to a USB and bringing them to the person, we'll be able to put the files on a web USB and email the USB to them
@lynnesbian "this needs to be marked as a joke" is hilarious (and maybe a little sad)
@wdtz i know there are people out there who would have replied "actually you can just use google drive" or "actually you can't email a webUSB, it's an API" otherwise
@lynnesbian ah, that makes sense, thanks.
