    PC is the only device, which "connects people" to the phones?

    I wonder why nobody cannot imagine that a phone could be connected to something besides PC; for instance, a Mac or a micro-sensor system? The latter is of high demand but there is no rs232 pinout information.

    You have produced a high-tech part which has extremely limited use -- it cannot be a part of any electronic system. The corporations develop high-tech for the stupid consumers. They kill the natural rs232 by the extra complex USB. You produce the stupid consumers. And call it "progress".

    RS232 is a bit historical thing nowadays already, anyway, you can use BT & Irda to connect your phone to any other machine really easily, so maybe its about the designs of the other devices you might want to call "stupid"...

    "progress" also has a tendency of "killing" inferior older systems...

    There are always two kind of things: natural/optimal and artificially overcomplicated. The natural are always superior. I call "stupid" everybody who makes things more complex than necessary.

    The rs232 has two lines for bidirectional communication. This is utterly simple and it is all what is needed to communicate between two uC systems. What is the fucking need to tunnel the plain rs232 over the wireless shit or to introduce the USB host-function-classes-drivers problems for the developers? They are not optimal looking from both development effort nor from the resources required nor from oprating point of view. Developer just needs to make much more extra work and use extra resourses in your more advanced technology compared to the more reliable cable.

    Any overcompexity is absurd. That is your progress -- producing more garbage.
