I’m positive this is intentional

the nomenclature surrounding USB-C and power delivery has fucked any ability to perform productive internet searches

“USB-C hub” means a piece of cheap plastic that plugs into another device via USB-C and provides passthrough alongside 6 other worthless ports. same with “USB-C docking station”.

“multiport USB-C charger” means a shitty wall wart with one USB-C port and 3 worthless Type A ports

It bothers me when people characterize smartphones as worthless toys only good for doomscrolling and gacha games because they can’t think of anything better to do with their phones or do any research into making their devices effective
