    Can someone help me understand what they mean by "Delivering a Single-Cable Solution"? Do they mean a single protocol (USB), a single dock type cable that carries all types of data, or a single connector (Type C) that will replace all the previous USB connectors?

    In another thought, I have low expectations for the USB type C connector. While it seems great for mobile devices, I don't see how it can form a secure connection that won't disconnect at the slightest amount of pulling force. That would disqualify the connector's use in most applications where it would be annoying to have the plug accidentally come loose.

    It's a micro usb 3.0 cable to power a device, with an additional usb plug for added power requirements, like you see on some external usb2.0 dvd burners.

    I think the title's statement of one usb cable to replace them all is due to the fact that usb 3.1 with have a much higher power capability, thus making the type of cables pictured obsolete.
