A cleaner USB

The birth of USB was an important move towards standardizing computer peripherals. But since 1996, Moore's law has trudged on and the USB plug now seems a little cumbersome. This little flash drive is clever, but maybe there's something better.

Let's just get rid of the plug. Who doesn't love apple's magnetic power cord connection. Let's use that idea. To easily adapt to the new technology, just plug up a USB socket with the adapter and all your new peripherals snap into place. (photoshop collage - Device doesn't exist, but I think I want one.)
