    After reading this article I'm still la bit confused.
    My smartphone, a Samsung J3 (2017) has what appears to be a micro USB port for charging. The charging cable that came with the Samsung also provides a connection to my laptop (running Ubuntu 18.04) but some other micro USB cables I have lying around will charge my Samsung but will not make a connection to my laptop.
    Another problem I have never resolved are the USB-C cables that enable my laptop to connect a Hub and others, in all aspects identical, which are only useful to connect smartphones.
    Are there ways of identifying these apparently identical cables which in fact are obviously not identical?

    I believe that the technological advancements by Homo Sapiens will lead to the extinction of Homo Sapiens and the evolution to the next stage of Humans.
