Vanishing Ports

Jason Snell made a chart of the 15” MacBook Pro ports over the years. Looks like 2003-2005 was the period of peak ports. I actually like the USB-C concept of “one port to rule them all” but I can’t help but feel it is, thus far, a false promise. USB-C is not as ubiquitous as we’d hoped for and there are still a lot of technical limitations around it. It’s been years now and I keep wondering when/if USB-C will get it’s act fully together.
