Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Wired mobile connections, part of CompTIA A+ Exam Prep (220-901) Part 6: Laptops and Mobile Devices.
- Since the very first mobile devices,…we have wanted ways to connect these things…to do all kinds of stuff.…Mainly, we wanted to connect them…to give them power.…We wanted to connect them…so that we could do data transfers…of some type…and third,…we'd like to connect our mobile devices…to large video output.…There's nothing better than using a little tablet…to make a PowerPoint presentation.…So, what I want to talk about in this episode…is the happy magic world…of the many wired connections…that we have with mobile devices.…Now, if there's been a place…that we've seen evolution in technology…it has been in the many different types…of wired connections…that we use on mobile devices.…
If you go back to the old days,…this old iPack of mine…had this crazy proprietary connection.…I actually had to plug it into a docking station…and then that made my link to my computer.…This old iPhone that I've got here…has a proprietary 30 pin dock connector…and luckily we don't see those too terribly much anymore.…So, the thing I want to stress right now…
