The unending march of technological progress probably left you feeling slightly confused when you saw that fancy new 12-inch MacBook arrived with just a single USB-C port. Well, a company called Satechi has come up with a solution to solve Apple’s oversight.
The company’s new Type-C Hub Adapter turns the sole USB-C port into three classic USB-A ports (the kind you’ve been using for years and years) plus an SD card slot and a microSD card slot.
The slim design comes in three different colours to match the colour options for Apple’s 12-inch MacBook, but it will of course also work with Chromebooks or other devices that have already embraced USB-C with open arms.
At £23 ($34) we would have also liked to have seen a USB-C pass-through added to the hub so that users could continue charging their 12-inch MacBooks while still using all of their old USB peripherals. But more realistically, we’d rather see Apple add a second USB-C port on its next hardware refresh. [Satechi]
