Fortunately, the tech office is right next door. Come to find out that most USB connectors are now using the "micro" USB connector. They had one I could borrow, but I find it so aggravating that the Mini USB connector has been replaced just for size. It's not that much different. Of course, we will all support that ailing economy by purchasing an adapter or new USB cable that has the "micro" end.
For those of you looking for an adapter such as this, check out online stores for the best prices. I like the Motorola product just because it is not so tiny that I will lose it!
