Ahh, That’s Where the VGA Connector Went

vga-phone-stand-1The VGA connector has reached the final stage of the tech life cycle. It’s gone from nascent idea to cutting edge technology to accepted standard to disdained antiquated technology to forgotten to, finally, use in cheap retro novelties.

The old VGA connector that was once the constant companion of your computer monitor has now been hollowed out and relegated to the role of cheap plastic smartphone stand. Meninos is selling a small rubber stand in the form of a VGA connector, with a little suction cup at the end to keep it in place. I think this is the closest thing we have in the tech industry to a dignified, tasteful funeral.

You can get the VGA Phone Stand for a little under $9 on Meninos.
