Jeremy Harpham on USB C and Proprietary Chargers

Try thinking the other way round... For example my OnePlus and Xiaomi rapid chargers work as standard USB-C chargers with other devices. The dedicated cables for the super fast charging were so that the thermal management could be in the power brick and not in the phone. I believe USB Power Delivery cables now do something similar.

Gavin Fabiani-Laymond’s thoughts on Google I/O 2022

Lots of software stuff. It will be interesting to see what comes and when and if it’s any good. And what Google decides to remove. Holistically it looks like Google is trying to copy Apple with a hardware portfolio of products. Nothing wrong with that.
