Who the hell is Casey Less:
Never thought I'd see Gruber this critical of Apple's choices lol. I'm perfectly happy with my 15" MacBook Pro because I spent about $50 replacing all of my existing cables, but I can't imagine anyone who isn't as tech-savvy being able to make sense of this mess. Even I had to do an unreasonable amount of research and cross-comparison.

He's critical all the fucking time, he's just critical in the ways you want him to be all the time.

>It’s a fundamental axiom of good design that things that look the same should be the same, and things that are different should look different. USB-C breaks this.

And Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt using the same connectors didn't?

Never heard Gruber complain about that breaking "fundamental axioms."

I've always said USB-C sucks. This is exactly why. Of course, I was laughed at because REASONS. But I was right.

No, you're wrong. USB-C is a great port interface over USB-A.
