    You're being cryptic, no pun intended. Seriously, if you're going to discuss a topic, do so a bit more directly, not elliptically.

      The MIC bundle multiple cables in a Rube Goldberg manner in order to increase electron flow. I doubt they have changed their ways.

        If the point is to make a device portable enough that any cop can carry it in their squad car or on their person, then being able to expand its power by connecting it to other devices via USB cable kind of defeats that point, no?

        There are surely all sorts of ways to build a device that can do all of these things, but I'm guessing that even today, to build one this portable is beyond the reach of most PDs, which is what we're talking about, not the feds.

        Btw USB is but one way to connect devices, of which there are many, e.g. Firewire, SATA, Thunderbolt, SD, Bluetooth, ANT, WiFi, cellular, etc.
