What technology would you like to be streamlined?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (24648points) November 11th, 2022

Europe is streamlining computer, laptop and charging cables. I would like to see it included to my country.

I would also like printer ink streamlined as well.

What do you think?
What other changes would you like to be implemented?

The whole world should switch to Euro Plugs, and 220v power delivery.
Everyone should also use the ISO 216 paper sizes.
They should all switch to metric, period.

@ragingloli I agree. The world would be a better place. I would like a universal language for speaking and computer programming.

Mathematics seems to be streamlined in the Hundi/Arabic language. That’s why an American can participate in Asian stockmarkets, and purchase food from a vending machine.

I am all for the metric system being accepted world wide. Will cut down on measurements errors in engineering and space travel.

I also think that we should only have one sign language for the deaf.

All electronics should have exchangeable plugs so there’s no need for adapters! I get so mad when I buy something then have to go right back to the store to get an adapter!

All electric plugs should have no right or wrong way; just put the gfc hole on both sides. As it is now, my bathroom outlet is upside down, so I have to plug my hairdryer with its huge bulky plug upside down just so I can use the other plug. This causes unnecessary wear and tear on the cord because it bends down in a U-shape. I have to plug it that way because of the difference in size of the freakin’ prongs!

Also, I have a couple of plugs on items that allow the prongs to be folded in when not in use, which is cool for traveling. But when I plug them in on a strip, they take up half of another socket so it can’t be used. So on a strip with 6 sockets, I may only be able to use 4 of them.
grrrrr I just found out that I do have a pet peeve! electronics!
