Rant: One Plug for Everything

Charlie White of Gizmodo writes an excellent rant on the staggering array of cables, plugs, and jacks that exist to do the same kinds of things - and an impassioned plea for electronics manufacturers to find a way to make One Plug for Everything. He also sketches out some excellent criteria for this uber-cable: "It needs to be small, it needs to have tremendous bandwidth, and it needs to be smart enough to not ruin anything you plug it into." Read the rant, then try not to think about the rats' nest you probably have tangled behind your TV - you'd just get depressed.
