Finding Compatible USB-C Accessories Is a Crapshoot ➝

Andrew Freedman, writing for Laptop Mag:

USB Type-C is great. It’s the future. I want vendors to pick it up even more rapidly than they have. But for the new standard to meet its potential, everything you want to plug into it has to work, no matter what company’s computer or phone you’re buying. If you’re buying something with a driver to deliver data, you’ll probably be fine, but the promise is that everything — everything — will work out of the box. That’s not the case yet. Hopefully, it will be one day

This sounds like a miserable experience.
