Who are "some people"? Maybe they just don't know the difference.
I?m researching the use of the term ?jack? and how it is applied as a name of a connector. From my education in electronics, a jack is a female type of connector; as opposed to the term plug, which is a male type connector. Some people use the word ?jack? as a common name for both male AND female connectors.
There seems to be quite different use between European and American use of this terminology.
Can you shed any light on this subject?
