No more being wrong half the time when you insert a USB cable

I stumbled on the solution a long, long time ago but judging from what I see every day around me, it's not obvious.

Watch the video up top, made just for you by me using Google Glass, and see how a little round sticker can make life just that much less annoying.

After all, it's not only a game of inches, like in Al Pacino's classic speech in "Any Given Sunday" (below),

later memorialized in that TV car commercial, it sometimes is a matter of black or white, right or wrong.

There's no gray area when it comes to plugging something in: it's in or it's not.


Don't go there.

But I digress again.

768 self-adhesive dots —


192 apiece red, blue, yellow, and green — cost $2.99.

Cheap at twice the price.
