Bullshit MacBook connector or Moto G?

This $80 USB dongle can't even make calls

Today at its "Spring Forward" event, Apple unveiled its most magical notebook yet, the new MacBook. It's ridiculously thin and light, sporting a retina display and a new pressure-sensitive touchpad. And it's also got just one port for charging and connecting other stuff — a new reversible USB-C connector.

The only problem? You'll need an adapter to connect your existing stuff — think regular USB gadgets, Thunderbolt accessories, SD cards, etc. — and according to Apple's store listing it's not included in the box. The company will, however, sell you an adapter. There are two versions — one with HDMI, the other with VGA — and both retail for $79.

Also selling for around $80 is the Verizon prepaid Moto G.

So here's how these two break down at the $80 price point.
