Apple seems to be coming around to something similar to my suggestion that Apple come up with a replacement for the current Ethernet connector that works like MagSafe. This goes one step further by combining data with power.
- I just hope the connector is flexible enough to be used just for data. There are situations where users need to tap wired data but don't have AC power available.
- Also, this idea will really only make sense if the data connector is something that can be used with multiple platforms (not just Macs, so schools, libraries, and businesses adopt it.
