To take advantage of the double-speed USB 3.0 interface, devices such as computers, hubs, and digital cameras will need new USB controller hardware. However, the new version of USB 3.0 uses the same connectors, so existing USB devices can be plugged into the higher-speed ports. USB 3.0 cables may or may not work. "Existing SuperSpeed USB cables are not certified to operate at 10 Gbps; it is possible that some existing SuperSpeed USB cables may be capable of operating at 10 Gbps," the group said.
USB has been a remarkable success, spreading from the computer industry to many other segments of the market including cars, mobile phones, and TVs, The Universal Serial Bus Implementers Forum (USB-IF), which oversees the standard, said there are more than 720 USB 3.0 devices, Another area of development: upgrading USB's ability to carry electrical current so it can be used to charge mobile devices faster and even power laptop PCs, There's some good news for Thunderbolt, which is useful today by virtue of its convenience and performance, Each Thunderbolt port offers dual anatomy of an elephant iphone case 10Gbps channels and the ability to daisy-chain multiple Thunderbolt devices, Its utility is expanding with the arrival of optical Thunderbolt cables, And Thunderbolt's future also is warmed by Intel's plan for faster versions of the standard..
But so far Thunderbolt is almost completely nonexistent on personal computers besides Apple models, and cables remain expensive. USB is a necessity, but Thunderbolt remains a luxury. The new USB standard also could make life harder for another new high-speed communication standard, PCIe Cable. The first devices that take advantage of the new standard's 10Gbps data-transfer speed should arrive in 2014. Too bad for Thunderbolt. Computing industry powers are doubling the data-transfer speed of USB 3.0 from today's 5 gigabits per second rate to 10Gbps.
Called the Jongo T640B, Pure says it's designed to act as the main hi-fi in a living room, With 100 watts of power produced by two 5-inch drivers, it may well have a point, Stands are available from Pure so the Jongo can sit upright rather than lying down, or be mounted on the wall, Jongo products are designed to be used with smartphones and tablets, Download Pure's app and you can stream the music on your device to the speaker using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, If you have more anatomy of an elephant iphone case than one Jongo, they can all be set up to play the same piece of music simultaneously, but you can't send different tracks to be played on two or more Jongos from the same phone or tablet, Pure says its app works with iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches running at least iOS 5 and Android version 2.2..
The Jongo T640B will sell for $329 in the U.S. and £250 in the U.K., which makes it cheaper than Sonos' Play:5, but more expensive than the Play:3. Given the superior features the Sonos products offer, it's going to have to sound amazing to justify that price tag. It'll ship in the first half of the year. Pure is also announcing a new hi-fi adapter today that adds the same streaming-audio functions to an existing hi-fi. Called the Jongo A140B, it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with analogue audio outputs plus optical and coaxial digital ports. Plug one of those into an old hi-fi you have knocking around, and you can use the Pure app to stream music in the same way as the other Jongo speakers.
