Archos USB A-Male to A-Male against USB Law !!!

I'm a firm believer in using quality, insulated cables with good connectors,
for stereo and PC uses after having researched the topic at some length. I
found this quite humerous, but not surprising. Archos scores again.

> "A" to "A" USB cables are against USB law. All computers are supposed to
have the "A" connector and all devices should have the "B" connector. Archos
went against the USB standard and put the "A" connector on their device. I
imagine that they want you to buy their $39.00 cable? The price has come
down. The last time I looked it was $50.00.
