    On Monday, the committee in charge with developing the next-generation USB 3.0 standard released the first version of the USB 3.0 specification to implementers.

    Though we can't expect to see commercial products implementing the new spec until 2010, we can look forward to transfer rates ten times faster than USB 2.0 thanks to improvements in the spec, which will be marketed as USB Superspeed.

    Oh, Em, Gee.

    I was stuck with USB 1.0 until over a month ago, I thought 2.0 was lightning fast!

    not usb 3.0 won't speed file transfer to ipods and iphones because the solid state memory in them is slower than usb 2.0

    SATA only handles 3Gbps, and most OS's will go even slower for many reasons.

    Was just going to say something similar. Its not like this will help with the current line of Ipods. Maybe in the future.
