Appliance with connector along side.
For example, for an electronic appliance, rather than
attaching the USB directly into the device there is a tunnel
alongside the appliance which protects the wire from
bending and the connection from breaking.
||Some years ago, I bought a Samsung TV which had all the
rear connectors (power, HDMI, RCA sets, USB) flush like this,
and I thought "finally, they've got the idea!".
Then it got damaged (earthquake) and I had to buy a new
one. Aaand they went back to the perpendicular nonsense...
||There are compact USB "A" right-angle interposer connectors that do exactly this.
