Connector Conspiracy

Go up to Top.

Go forward to CONS.

 CONNECTOR CONSPIRACY [probably came into prominence with the
       appearance of the KL-10, none of whose connectors match anything else]
       n. The tendency of manufacturers (or, by extension, programmers or
       purveyors of anything) to come up with new products which don't fit
       together with the old stuff, thereby making you buy either all new
       stuff or expensive interface devices.
