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...
