When was the last time /g/ used a USB port?
Everyday with mouse and keyboard.
>>650859731 minute ago I transferred a file on usb, and my mouse and keyboard is usb too.
I got some USBa to USBc tiny adaptors and attached them to my mouse and keyboard with a special tape. I only use my USBc laptop now so I don't use normal USB.
>>65085973is this apple shill?
umm mouse and keyboard? usb headset, charging my smartphone everyday.
>>65086042you could just use a usb c mouse. it would probably be cheaper to buy a usb c mouse than the adapters costed.
>>65086079Adaptor is like 1 pound.
>>65085973Every single day. MouseKeyboardDebuggersRS232/485 adaptersGeneral charging port for low power devicesFlash drives/external HDDsGetting rid of USB would means buying a USB hub and back to square one.
>>65086104But add USB 3.0 port is like 25c.
>>65085973Maybe an hour ago to transfer files and use a keyboard
>>65085987this, and also with usb flash drive like a few hours ago
>>65086123What? I'd rather keep using my expensive mouse over some cheap chink shit.
>>65085987Why aren't you using ps/2?
>>65086204because its not 1965
>>65086228Every motherboard worth owning today has keyboard and mouse ps/2 ports.
>>65085973I'm assuming you mean for a flash drive...About 3 times a week. I'm a college student.You ask the question as if flash drives are obsolete like disc drives. Fuck off.
>>65085973I'm using 3 of them right now.
I use all besides one of the front ports every day, and when I need an usb drive, I use the last port for it.
>>65086238>>65086204Supply and demand. Retards demand stupidity, the market will supply. Unless youre in IT and physically working on servers, fuck off with ps/2 ports. USB is better.
>>65086356>USB is better.Why?
>>65086363The only ones that don't have them are garbage ''gamer'' motherboards. Those aren't worth owning.
Ports are outdated technology that nobody needs. Use wireless instead.
>>65086238No true scotsman>>65086371You know the advantages. Why don't you instead explain why you want PS/2. Muh chad interrupts?
Daily.HDD external chasisUSB 4-port hubUSB mouseUSB keyboardUSB UPSUSB controllerUSB phone chargerUSB tabletUSB thumbdriveUSB speakersIf you aren't using atleast 2 usb ports daily you're either a mobile phone shit user or some little retard that barely uses their computer.
Yesterday, to scan some documents.Because I have no idea how to scan documents over Ethernet using Arch Linux.Was hard enough getting printing to work with CUPS.
>>65085973not counting shit that is plugged in 24/7 like mouse and keyboard:just yesterday i plugged by kindle into the computer to transfer some pornographic short stories about mind control onto it
>>65085973Every day? Mouse, keyboard, mic, other keyboard, ds4 controller, phone charger, usb stick
>>65086378>muh koding xD
>>650859732 minutes ago
>>65086378but ps/2 is literally a gaming meme
>>65085973All day everyday. Stop trying to find excuses to remove more ports you undercover apple researcher.
>>65085973Right now, charging my phone
>>65085973Also stop posting this thread
>>65086378Bullshit.ps/2 still comes standard.It's probably in case none of the USB controllers work, so you can still access UEFI and fix them.
>>65085973> last time used USBeveryone:> all the damn time/thread
>>65086075>No one needs USB anyways. Says AppleMaybe their innovation team are testing new waters
mouse, keyboard, zip disquette.
>>65085973Right now, you stupid Applel shill.
>>65085973Last night. Shit thread by the way, OP.
>>65088059but apple uses USB, why'd you even bring apple into this
>>65086914What's a computer?
>>65086865Because of muh precious Model M
>>65086204PS/2 is only better for keyboard
>>6508597330 seconds ago
>>65085973Like 30 minutes ago.
Every USB port on my desktop is occupied
>tfw nowadays most laptop charges through USB C now (with the rest being proprietary junk for the sake of proprietary junk)USB is literally the future, i dont understand this thread.
>>65088318>muh one port wonder
>>65085973Is this apple trying to see if they could get away with removing USB from the next MacBook.
>>65090474>remove usb from macbook to make it even more light and thin, or maybe waterproof>no ports to charge it>macfags buy a new macbook every few daysFUCKING BRILLINAT
around five minutes ago, USB stick. There's no more flexible and easy file transfer protocol than a physical medium connected through the ease of Universial Serial Bus.
>usb audio>usb keyboard>usb mouse>usb external storage for backups>usb programming for quadsliterally right now
>>65090971That picture is so true.
>>65090971This would easily be solved by just making a torrent
>>6508597324/7 it still and will for decades to come be a industry wide port. USBC is going to take some time to catch on with the business world.
>>65091134No, because my brother does not do torrenting. So we would need to install a client, and create a magnet for the file, which would be sent across some messeging app or email, which in itself is pretty complex. And the local discovery doesn't always work, i works often, but not always, so in doing that i would look forward to discovering is IP, as we don't do static local IPs anymore (steam does all the game linking, so what ever)All that setup wouldn't have been completed before the mod-file was transferred to a USB stick, and flung through the living room. And no, downloading the mod again is still not as fast. You would have to find the page in firefox, even if it is open, verify that i was the right one, copy the link, certainly only of the page (as direct link of the file does not always work, maybe some per-deteriation of hosting server is done on some sites, i don't know) and then again decide and communicate your intended medium of transferring the link, so he could watch it, and then start the transfer, which is almost guaranteed to be slower than the speed of my decent USB stick.I have in fact a permanent mounted USB stick on our router, with all PCs linked to it, which is often how we do it. However it was currently full, and instead of going through the effort of judging the importance of said files belonging to other members of the household, i just grabbed a nearby USB stick.TL;DR: No, it's not faster. For a single transfer, between two random(!) people, USB stick is always faster.
>>65090971Wetransfer, although there's probably something dodgy with the monetisation model, on the face of it it gets the job done in seconds with no worries that it won't work. The fact it'll go up to 2gb is great for 95% of scenarios, in the past i've used it to send minimally compressed video, .dlls needed by a friend, collections of raw photos and patches for software and games. You even get a conformation email when the guy downloads so you can be sure that everything worked out.
>>65085973Just now to transfer files.Wanted to do it via ssh, but I fucking forgot to enable it on my server (lazily just started it once for setups stuff) and now I can't be asked to connect a keyboard (mount-script that automatically moves new media). I am a real, yet failed human bean.
>>65085973right now with my mouse. keyboard is PS/2 though
Is this a bait thread?
>>65091575>probably something dodgy with the monetisation modelThe only thing dodgy about that is that it only goes up to 20GB with 100GB available at once and that my company uses it for deliverables. I asked them about this and there's no plans for them to make it a larger system. Conversely something like media exchange want tens of thousands of pounds per year for their systems.
A couple seconds ago
the last time i typed or moved my mouse they arr still required shut up with you otherwise implications you braying jackass
>>65086204Haha most people have a PS4 these days, gramps.
>>65086982funny, mine just werks
>>65086982you realize cups is how big offices print right?
>>65086356PS/2 has better latency. If you like gaymen you should use PS/2 for your mouse at the very least.
>>65092621find me a decent mouse that is PS2
>>65092653I'm actually thinking of getting one, I'm disappointed with the mice I have
>>65091134Torrenting as a mean of a singular person-to-person file transfer is a "remove the glands through the asshole" tier autism.
using one right now
>>65092972I use torrents to move data around my own network. Come at me bro.
>>65085973Literally everyday for mouse, keyboard, external hdd, usb soundcard
>>65085973all day err daydesktop master race
>>65086238there is 1 port that can be split, but they never include splitters even on higher end motherboards.>>65086865for the keyboard, because its there and I prefer it, I don't need gamer leds and other bullshit, I just want the keyboard to work and ps/2 offers up the best compatibility, had quite a few motherboards where usb was hit or miss if it would work with the bios, but ps/2 never failed me. for mice, I don't thing I ever used a ps/2 mouse after ball mice, I have an old trackball I need to get a ps/2 to usb adaptor for to play around with, but beyond that, I can't think of a good reason for ps/2 mice.
>>65086865>You know the advantages. Why don't you instead explain why you want PS/2. Muh chad interruptsYou do know that because USB is poll-driven, you can actually lose keystrokes if you type fast.
>>65086104Damn, that's a pretty heavy adaptor.
>>65093126What is the poll rate? 10hz? 100hz? No one is typing fast enough to lose keystrokes from polling.
Is it even possible to NOT use USB? You'd have to use solely a laptop with a standard AC adapter charger as your main rig, and all data transfer would be cloud services-only, and your phone would need to use a proprietary charger. Even wireless chargers use a USB interface.
>>65093034P2P file sharing has dedicated software - not fucking torrents. Why the fuck are you so retarded?
>>65086204>tfw you have a PS/2 keyboard but have to use a PS/2 to USB adapter because your motherboard is acting up when you boot with keyboard in the PS/2 port
>>65085973Two hours ago. Yes, we get it op. You're a Mac fag and have a touch bar and all Bluetooth peripherals. Good for you. Now kindly stop taking about it. Your choice of masturbratory fetish isn't ours.
>>65093238The torrent client is already on all my machines, I don't have to install or configure anything else. Besides, try moving a music collection with tens of thousands of files over other protocols, shit takes forever.
>>65093470No, it doesn't. I've been actively using LAN for at least a decade.Regular LAN file transfer is enough for you.P2P will do exactly the same thing your torrents do, but better.
>>65085973I use them constantly... several ports and several times a day.
>>65085973everyday for backups
>>65086371>UniverisalSBYou can use it for other things and it's hot swappable by default.>>65092621You wouldn't notice the latency. Youre a human being, not a machine.
>PS/2 mouse + keyboard>3.5mm audio jack>"external" hdd connected with sata power and data hanging out through my 5.25" bayswhat kind of faggot uses usb?
>>65092621Unless you are gaming at a professional level where every frame and millisecond counts, it is nonsense to care about USB latency.
>>65085973right now to transfer 2.7tb of anime/vn to my external hdd
>>65086204my keyboard uses ps/2. my wireless mouse uses a usb dongle
>>65085973about 10 minutes ago for ADB
>>65095378jesus how long is that taking?
>>65095728approx 100MB/s over usb3. windows says 6.5 more hours.
>>65085973about fifteen seconds ago.
>>65086204What fucking laptop in the last half a decade came with a fully functional PS/2 port?
>>65095786Most docks have ps/2 ports.
>>65093141I mean in terms of cost, £1 :)
>>65091575>You even get a conformation email when the guy downloads so you can be sure that everything worked out.That's pretty cool. Might talk to the boss about it.
>>65086280>obsolete like disc drives.Fuck off. Software would be too expensive to put on USB.
>>65093213Do they even still make mice that don't work off USB
>>65086204where's that chad ps/2 image when you need it
>>65096486oh boy, are you retarded
>>65096537Ask and ye shall receive
>>65085987This, also yesterday while installing SABS on my phone
>>6508597312 minutes ago
>>65085973Do you use a ps/2 mouse and keyboard? Cool. Now fuck off
>>65085973Seeing as I use a USB DAC/Headphone amplifier I use it every single day, every time I'm at a desk.
All day every day.
>>65086204>ps/2"The PS/2 interface saves power due to its interrupt-driven nature compared to USB which requires periodic polling, so it is a popular interface for laptops' internal keyboards and pointing devices."Does it mean I've been using PS/2 all along and never realised if I've been using a laptop for the past 8 years?
>>65087721Apple makes you use thunderbolt for everything now. Thunderbolt mouse. Thunderbolt keyboard. No more type c just thunderbolt.
>>65085973I use only USB for privacy reasons. I'd rather store my data directly on USB rather than them letting it go through my motherboard.
>>65097760>I'd rather store my data directly on USB rather than them letting it go through my motherboard.
Mouse/keyboardWireless headsetMicHDD dockCable for my phoneAnd there's a whole bunch moreI basically use all ports
>>65093126>you can actually lose keystrokes if you type fast.If you can type fast enough to lose keystrokes then you deserve to lose those keystrokes.
>>65097757What is this thing called "standards", nobody want that.
>>65097856FYI, your motherboard may have a backdoor that you're not aware of.

>>65085973>When was the last time /g/ used a USB port?Right now, my mouse.
>>65085973Right now. Usb mouse and k/b.
>>65097751Probably. The trackpoint uses PS/2 interface, for example.

>>65086204Because my keyboard and mouse is wireless.
>>65098053no shit sherlock
>>65085973>When was the last time /g/ used a USB port?Seconds ago
When was the last time OP used a brain?
>>65085973>When was the last time /g/ used electricity?The applel regression has to be stopped. They degenerate tech in the name of """progress""". Perhaps in their eyes it makes sense because Apple is made of liberals, for liberals; the blue-haired progressive college crowd is addicted to their products, which are the same people who welcome pure degeneracy as progress, improvement, the next step in humanity's social advancement. The amount of mental gymnastics they've gone through completely disables any possibility of rational thought, which easily explains some autistic choices of Debian devs, Google, Apple, Reddit, Faceberg and etc.Apple:>dropped support for floppies when they were still popular, contributing to their death>got rid of all ports, EVEN THE MOST POPULAR FUCKING ONE in favor of their own(tm) slightly faster alt for it>did the same with discs as with floppies>disabled the headphone jack (fuck they might get rid of speakers or the screen next time, fuck)>integrate obsolescenceware into their OS versions so older machines would run like crap, forcing people to gib moar shekels>LOVE(s) planned obsolescence>made their products so that they could only be repaired at their centers, only for 6 billion dollars>never use removable batteries, run software that slows down the processor with your battery getting older>placed a mouse charger port ON ITS FUCKING BOTTOM>made an overpriced bendophone>made a medium-tier smartphone for $1000 that can't even display websites properly because of the dumb non-rectangular "le aesthetic" screenIf they really cared about "bringing the tech of the future", they'd eliminate all computer storage completely w/ ports, but maybe a few gigs, and release a machine that operates entirely off the cloud storage. Though, you know. We live in the current fucking year, not in the future, the machine would perform poorly for most people today for various reasons. So they're poor semilarpers for whom only rich soyboys fall.
>>65085973Nice try, Apple.

By the time you read this, the most recent use of usb port will have been clicking the /g/ post button with my usb_mouse.

>>65092621Why do gaming mouses have USB plugs then?
>>65106004because not everyone has a PS/2 port
>>65085973I've got like 8 devices connected via USB right now, so there's that.>2 mics>1 audio interface for instruments>1 audio interface for stereo recording>phone charger, with my phone attached>game controller>mouse+keyboard is technically 3 slotsSo, yea. All going into mobo I/O, not hubs.I guess if you're a typical consumer who only has a computer as a means of accessing the internet, then USB's probably aren't something you use that often. For literally anyone else, they are an essential piece of hardware.
