I am convinced USB cables are surrounded by some sort of magical forcefield that screws with your mind. Let’s see if this sounds familiar: you go to plug a cable into a USB port and immediately discover it’s not facing the right way. So you flip it around and try it again, only to realize it’s still not right! What the – it only has two possible orientations! So you flip it back again (right where you started! *ahem*) and then it suddenly fits. Seriously, what is this sorcery?
Someone out there is sure having a good laugh at our expense.
