At some point in the future, hotels may catch up the rest of the world and realise they are not meant to be the curators of all content within their walls.
These ports, which look inviting to the visiting geek, have all been disabled. How utterly pedestrian. All I have ever wanted from a hotel is to be locked into their nonsensical menus to rent from a limited selection of movies (with discretion par for the course). The whole decadence of staying in a hotel is to be found within these menu systems and not within the comfort of the room, the selection in the minibar nor the tiny single-serving bars of soap.
