USB-C #donglelife

Between the new Macbook Pro and the iPhone 7, you will need a long of dongle's if you want to keep all your hardware connected, charged and useful. The problem is that dongles aren't useful. They are a band-aid solution to a big problem. Some people that bought a new Macbook Pro had spent several hundred dollars on dongles, but now Apple has cut prices a bit. Still, the #donglelife is not all it's cracked up to be - but there are a few redeeming features.

I have been using USB-C for a year now, on the non-Pro MacBook, so I thought I should share some of my experiences. And I want to tell you that the #donglelife (yes, it’s a hashtag) is not all that horrible for me, day-to-day. That’s in large part because I am smack in the center of Apple’s target market: I don’t need to plug stuff beyond power into my computer all that often, so when I do it’s not too big a hassle to use a dongle.
