    25GB in 70 seconds should be fast enough for anyone.

    On Pauldotcom, they were saying that thousands of thumbdrives were found in DC area laundromats every year. Kind of scary! I would think, that if you just let them dry out before plugging them in, the data would have a good chance of surviving.

    Does anyone not see the potential threat of everyone having their whole life on a USB stick?

    Hey, why not? People already put their whole lives on Myspace/Facebook/Twitter etc.

    all we need now is Assisted Intelligence to go with it and a lil plug in the back of our head....
    then we can plug our usb drives in and our AI will hang out with us all day!

    (p.s. is anyone else scared of this? this is one of my goals as a computer science/neuro science major and I'm scared to death I'll actually figure out how to do it)

    Hey Cider,

    I certainly do................you could waste good beer money on one of them fancy USB drives. I can fit my whole life on a 3.5" floppy.............and someone just gave me a box of 50

    As for the main topic of this thread; I think that it is great, but I would feel a lot happier if the physical USB connection were more precise and reliable.

    While all the numbers look impressive.. realise:

    USB1.1 to 2 - 1MB/s to 30MB/s

    And that was provided that you had a hispeed device/port not all supported.. but that said.. the speed improvement was Impressive (not breath taking)

    While USB 2 to 3 - 30MB/s to 300MB/s

    10 to 1 improvement.. sounds good.. BUT 30-1 sounds better.. all the GB/s sounds just impresses the consumers
    Also these specs are for a single port on a hub, as in the glancing reading I have done can I see where this is ALL ports loaded.. so if your doing a transfer from device to device.. on the same hub.. don't expect the full speed.. expect less than a third

    So it is an expected upgrade.. but not earth shattering

    what is interesting.. USB Monitors, PC's ie the netbooks will be able to be fully upgraded via a couple of USB3 ports HQ Sound, Video, Blueray burner, etc...

    I'll see if USB4 has a hope of impressing... What we really need to is dump these antique 32bit systems.. get 64 fully adopted.. as 128bit is overdue for desktop
