Then she'll pull out a micro-hdmi or something and completely make me want to smack her.

A lot of people seem to be talking about USB, as though this technology will be used for portable storage, I think we'll see this as more of a HDMI replacement or in Apple's case, DP.

Could have big networking potential, fiber in the home just isn't cost effective at the moment.

I REALLY hope not! Firewire never took off, and is really just a joke for most people in the industry. I've heard a few photographers exclaim the bounties of wonder that Firewire offers, but with the general lack of support on most devices, it isn't worth a hill of beans.

Part of the reason it lost ground was because, almost ironically, Apple stopped making iPods that made use of the interface after only a couple of generations of iPod. Shame, since it outpaces USB2.0 for large transfers.

My circuit board died on a 80gb I had gotten from school ages ago, still sitting on my desk waiting for me to actually retrieve that info. >.<

But I agree it was rather fast when I used it.

This isn't a Platform war, Light peak can work on USB3..

Quote:
During the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijin, Kevin Kahn, an Intel senior fellow, said Intel's goal is to "build the last cable you'll ever need." That comes off as a curious statement when you consider that Light Speed would add yet another cable to an already cluttered fray, but Light Peak is being designed run multiple protocols simultaneously. The philosophy here is one cable to rule them all, though Intel insists they're not trying to kill off USB 3.0. Instead, Intel expects "both to exist together in the market and perhaps on the same platform." For those of you still worried about a format war where consumers ultimately pay the price, Intel was showing off a Light Peak cable at IDF that connected to a laptop's USB 3.0 port. It remains unclear if this would be the standard port for Light Speed, but Kahn did say it would be a good starting point.

I'm still on USB2, and the only thing not good enough with it is massive file transfers, most of which are internal anyways...
When you consider how rapidly tech evolves I would say that no, USB3 isn't enough. At least it won't be in the future. As the years go by everything gets bigger and badder and eventually even USB3 will seem slow when taking into account the massive file transfers that eventually will take place.

Just 5 years ago I bought a laptop with a 120GB hard drive and I thought there was no way in Hell I'd use that much space. Now we have games alone that are regularly 10-20GB a pop. Who knows what another 5 years will bring.
