USB 3.0 is on the way

Currently, external hard drives, printers, and iPods are all connected to computers with USB 2.0 technology.  This means that the cables from these devices are connected to USB ports on the computer that are at USB 2.0 speeds.  Before USB 2.0 was USB 1.1.  As it sounds, each step up with the next USB is faster.  It is not twice as fast; it is actually 10x faster!

USB 3.0 is a remarkable 10x faster than USB 2.0.  The reason for this speed boost is to ensure high-definition and media rich content are played and viewed smoothly.  USB 2.0 sometimes has lag time with newer tech activities.  USB 3.0 will be able to compete more with firewire technology.  Firewire is known to be faster than USB which is true, but the 3.0 speed will close the gap.

Look out for USB 3.0 in the 2010 computers.
