Today we thought it would be nice to do another why is “why is it called that?”
We will go with everyone’s favourite one, USB!
For those of you who remember the old days where we had more cables with different ends than you could shake a Walkman at (old school reference), then you’ll no doubt remember it was a mess!
USB, was designed to solve that and to be universal, which is where part of its name comes from “Universal Serial Bus”. Using this they managed to get almost devices into a single connection type, a bit of a Lord the Rings thing, but instead it is “one cable to rule them all” sort of thing, not rule all of Middle Earth! 🙂
