Why Powered USB Is Needed Part 3: USB 3.0

Diablo-D3 writes "I've written a third, and hopefully final part, to the originally two part Why Powered USB Is Needed article that got Slashdotted two days ago, and this response is pretty much due to Slashdot users asking smart questions and poking a few holes in my argument. The third part covers how USB 3.0 essentially needs to follow in Firewire's footsteps to truly succeed and overcome people's views on USB as just a low bandwidth bus that no one uses seriously and, combined with New Powered USB, could overtake Firewire in high bandwidth applications."
