Next-gen USB to be reversible.
The group behind USB standards has revealed that the next generation of the plugs will be able to be connected either way up, removing one of the biggest frustrations with the plug. A standard USB plug will also become smaller, becoming about the size of a Micro USB used today in Android phones and tablets.

You won’t have to wait too long for the new spec to hit the market, as Type-C will be up for industry review in the first quarter of 2014, and the final product will hit during the middle of the same year, making next summer one of the most exciting times for tech.
