How is it that electric plugs with the cable coming out of the top are on the increase I think they are not ergonomically sound the "normal" ones were certainly easier to handle. They also somehow look untidy hanging in a "loop" and puts the cable under increased strain?

I have a theory, but was wondering if there are others who have similar moans, as it appears that a large proportion of the Forum are elderly, and whether there is an ulterior motive for it?
