This point is specifically for @pauliunas. Just to address his last post in another thread regarding USB Type C. No anger or rashness here, I just enjoy the discussion and want to address each point piece by piece.
 A regular charging adapter is better because:
[a]You can twist the round connector around, adapting to the angle that the tablet is standing at. Especially useful with angled plugs.
[b] It’s much much cheaper
[c] It’s not confusing. With USB-C we’re seeing a lot of accessories that “should” work but they don’t.
- A regular barrel adapter is better in limited ways.
a) This I have to give to you. I really like that aspect of barrel plugs.
b) I can’t agree with this, because it isn’t objectively correct in common scenarios. Most OEM chargers cost [upwards of $50 minimum] ((http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/pfydresults/249458/?categoryId=2999) (<one example). Microsoft is even more. A USB-C charger is cheaper because i) they’re actually cheaper. You can get good PD-capable chargers for [under $50 easily]((https://www.amazon.com/Anker-Premium-Charger-PowerPort-Delivery/dp/B01D8C6ULO/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1495303933&sr=8-3&keywords=usb+c+pd). That charger < has many additional high-power ports, AND a proper PD port, for cheaper. ii) you only need one high-power charger to be compatible with many devices. You could easily get by with 2 chargers for a phone, a tablet, a laptop, and a type-C power bank. That’s just one example. To buy chargers of equal quality for those devices individually would cost way more money.
 Because it’s stupid to spend more just because you spent some money. Just stupid. I already have all the peripherals I need, so why should I throw them away and buy new ones? I don’t know about you, but I think this is the definition of wasting money.
- I agree. Spending money for no reason is foolish. I should have clarified, I don’t have those accessories now. But why would I buy a Type-A peripheral when Type-C is clearly a superior connector to Type-A, and is compatible with more devices without adapters (i.e. Android phones)? That makes no sense. It’d be pretty foolish to buy a USB-A drive for personal use if C is a viable option.
 And now we’re talking about a completely different thing, Thunderbolt. [a] I really wish they used some other connector for Thunderbolt 3, even Displayport that nobody uses would be much better. [b] The reason for that is manufacturers having this illusion that a Thunderbolt 3 port can serve as a USB port. It can’t. It can only be a nasty workaround when you lack another USB port, and only if you have an adapter for that. [c] They include a TB3 port and think that they don’t need USB anymore. That is wrong. [d] I mean Thunderbolt is awesome, because it allows eGPU. Butthat’s Thunderbolt, not type C. [e] Too bad people associate theseso things so closely, even though they’re completely unrelated. Thunderbolt should not be giving any credits to type C.
a) I honestly cannot think of a single powerful reason why I would not want Thunderbolt to use Type C. Why the heck would I want a DisplayPort on my device when that would mean sacrificing the ability to plug in another standard USB Type-C device…?
b) Why can’t a Thunderbolt 3 port serve as a USB port? It can. The Thunderbolt 3 port can serve all the alt-profiles that other Type-C ports can. It supports Power Delivery charging. It supports any Type-C peripherals you want, and also supports Thunderbolt 3 peripherals. Where’s the disconnect here? Quite literally, it cam serve any Type-C aspects you want while also having Thunderbolt 3 capability.
c) When looking at your explanation, I can’t find any real reasons to back up this statement. Clarify?
d) No-one is arguing that Type-C on its own supports EGPUs, but why is this an issue? They share the same connector and this is a good thing. If you are using any accessories that utilize Thunderbolt, you’re spending large amounts of money. You should know whether or not your device actually has Thunderbolt, and the connector should not be confusing at that point.
e) I think it should. Thunderbolt is an awesome standard, but Type-C will always be more ubiquitous. Join forces, and the standard spreads. We sure don’t need MORE connector types…
Also, a side note for the whole thread, Type-C can actually serve analog audio. It’s one of the alt profiles. It can 100% replace the 3.5mm jack, it just isn’t a barrel plug which can be considered a downside.
