    A good indication it's faster (USB 3). Kind of a silly name, though, people will think it's as fast as Thunderbolt.

    "Earpods,"...not sure what I think of that name....

    Yeah, and yet another motion/speed/blue sort of concept per the event banners (faster cable/connection spec, LTE ... CPU ...?)

    If it supports USB3, then it'll be pointless for anyone with the 2011 MBP version or earlier (myself included) or anything not supporting USB3.

    Yeah, I don't understand them with this. I bought my iMac exactly a year ago and I will not be able to transfer the information at the new speeds.

    What gives!

    Maybe us folks with USB2 but Thunderbolt will get a decent hub in the near future :) Though honestly, I haven't connected an iDevice directly to a computer in probably a year.

    As if you or any of the rest will never have USB3?

    ----------

    So you never plan to upgrade?

    Yeah, you actually just reminded me that I haven't plugged mine into my computer since iOS 5 was released haha. Except just to charge it a few times.

    What would you expect, they can't go and add a faster interface to your iMac now can they? That said, the current transfer speeds don't max out USB 2 as it is, so you aren't limited by the interface speed. If they move to USB 3 and if the transfer speeds increase beyond what USB 2 can deliver (due to improving the flash memory), those using USB 2 will still see a nice increase in speed.
