"to meet almost any need"

Really? Is this news or a press release? How about a USB-C hub with an upstream USB-C PORT instead of a three inch cable? USB-C has been on the market for 10 months and STILL nobody can make a hub that isn't a dongle. I can't be the only one that would like my hub on the back of my desk or undr my desk rather than dangling from my laptop.

Are there USB 3.1 type A male to USB 3.1 type C female adapters?

This would be for motherboards that support USB 3.1 type A, but do not come with a USB-C port. I'm not technically knowledgeable enough to know if more hardware is required to support this (maybe a "chip/hub" is needed for proper support, amount of power available is probably an issue, not sure about number of contacts)? I know there are 3.5" bay brackets that provide USB 3.1 type C female ports off of an internal SATA Express connection, but don't know if this is possible using external USB 3.1 type A female ports.
