Like an old friend who never seems to go home, emulation is always with us, enabling us to connect our new-fangled computer devices to an i that wasn't really designed for that type of connection.

We don't think about emulation much, but without it, where would we be?
Back in the olden days, connecting to the i was easy. You just ran some Twinax under the floor or through the walls and straight up to the back of your computer. The cabling was inconvenient because it limited your ability to rearrange your office unless you were adroit enough to not trip over wires running out in the open.
