USB 3.0 to deliver a tenfold speed increase

Priya Ganapati looks at the future of USBs.

“The…USB is on track to make its first major upgrade in eight years – a tenfold speed increase over the current USB 2.0 standard. That means we’ll be able to rip music, video, photos from the vast array of peripherals we connect to our computers much more quickly, and it makes such up-and-coming devices as HD video cameras that much more practical. USB 3.0 will also deliver greater power efficiency and the ability to recharge a wider variety of gadgets – and it will most likely mean the death of the competing standard known as FireWire.”

The Society of Information Management’s 2008 IT Trends Survey shows that IT leaders are planning to increase offshore outsourcing in 2009, after two straight years of declines. Nevertheless, even with the increase, offshore outsourcing only represents five per cent of projected 2009 budgets, and CIOs say they are still having trouble finding enough domestic IT workers with the right mix of skills to fill the open positions that they are keeping at home.”
