USB 3.0 musings

So… USB 3.0 is coming out.  What is it, and why do we care?  Well, basically, under ideal conditions, computers will talk to USB devices up to 10 times faster than our current generation of USB devices.  Many of these devices will also take less power to run.  (We here at CableWholesale also care because the cables are going to need to be designed a bit differently, with extra wires inside to handle all that data.)  I’m not going to get into all the technical particulars, since I don’t want your eyes to glaze over.  Basically, starting next year, we’ll have stuff that runs faster than today’s stuff, and uses less juice.

I have to admit, I like simple technological advances that I can explain to my Uncle Dominic.
