That’s how fast it is!
In yet another installment of: “Oh, I can’t believe people use USB when Apple’s Firewire is so superior” …. ti ti ti ti ti* … “Apple no longer supports firewire, you will now all use USB” … USB 3.0 will be released Monday. USB 3.0 will transfer 25 GB in 70 seconds.
To put that in perspective, the same transfer would take 13.9 minutes with the current USB 2.0 protocol and 9.3 hours on USB 1.0. Looks like the future of wired syncs and backups is bright and blazing. [LH]
Well, my next external hard drive is going to have that … it will probably be faster than my internal hard drive.
* ‘ti ti ti ti ti’ is KiLese (a Central African Language) for ‘in this part of the story, time passes…’
