WHEN YOU'RE IN front of your PC, waiting for something to transfer to removable media, seconds can feel like minutes, and minutes like hours. And backups to USB 2.0 appear to crawl along at a snail's pace--so much so that users often become reluctant to perform that essential chore.
Such data-transfer scenarios are where the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard and its theoretical, blazing-fast throughput of 5 gigabits per second--as promised by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF)--will change your life for the better. And if our tests of four new USB 3.0 hard drives from Buffalo Technology, Iomega, Seagate, and Western Digital are indicative, the change will certainly be dramatic.
USB 3.0's impressive speed is its raison d'être, part of its beauty is its backward compatibility with USB 2.0. You need a new cable and a new host adapter (or one of the new motherboards built to but support USB 3.0) to achieve USB 3.0 performance. But you can still use a USB 3.0 device on a USB 2.0 port and achieve typical USB 2.0 performance. You may also use USB 2.0 devices on a USB 3.0 port--though, again, with no gain in speed.
The technology behind USB 3.0 more closely resembles PCI Express than USB 2.0. Backward compatibility comes from clever connector design, and a dual bus. The designers added four data lines and a ground wire for the new USB 3.0 signals, and retained the existing pair of data lines for use with USB 2.0 devices. The two technologies share the existing power and ground wires, but they are otherwise completely separated.
As such, the USB 3.0 connector has design changes to accommodate the extra data lines. If you examine the inside of a type A USB 3.0 port with its familiar rectangular shape closely, you'll see that it shares the same size as a USB 2.0 port as well as the original fourUSB 1.1/2.0 contacts.
However, the port also has an additional five smaller…...

The USB is now regarded as the initial tool for any academic, business means or to simply store photos or home videos etc. It is the ultimate portable storage device currently on sale in the market. How did the USB attain this high importance? History of USB The concept of a portable storage device was the idea of an Israeli computer hardware company in the 1990’s. The company created, developed and patented the first portable storage device which was named ‘DiskOnChip’ in 1995. However the development process was helped by a collection of seven companies: Compaq, DEC, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NEC and Nortel. The USB standard was pre-released in 1994 under version USB 0.7 and officially released in January 1996 under version USB 1.0. The data rate was between 1.5mb/s and 12mb/s. The development of the USB has been constant over the past decade from version USB 1.0 to the recently released version of USB 3.0 of speeds up to 5gb/s. USB version 2.0 was the longest in operation with many devices now still using version 2.0 from the release in the year 2000. The importance and use of USB version 2.0 has been set at speeds 35mb/s to 280mb/s. Many if not all computer devices on the market have USB 2.0 incorporated for USB devices such as plug and......

Introduction Web 1.0 is the brain child of Tim Berners Lee. It was an amazing standard that has led to the Web as we know it today. Although it was incredibly rough around the edges, it had massive amounts of potential that with the right structure would allow it to become something great. History of the Web Decline of Web 1.0 and Rise of Web 2.0 The web as we know it began as Web 1.0. It was an early design that was seen more as an incredibly rough and un-appealing draft than the innovative intricate design that we see today. As suggested by Cormode and Krishnamurthy “content creators were few in Web 1.0 with the vast majority of users simply acting as consumers of content.” [1] This is incredibly accurate. The truth is, as we previously stated, Web 1.0 was rough around the edges and didn’t exactly welcome visitors with...

Usb Introduction N History

...Introduction Of USB History USB—or Universal Serial Bus—is a protocol for connecting peripherals to a computer. It features a standarized port designed to accommodate many different types of hardware devices. Most modern devices such as digital cameras, printers, scanners, flash drives, cell phones, iPods and other MP3 players use some variation of the USB port in their design.The first USB technology began development in 1994, co-invented by Ajay Bhatt of Intel and the USB-IF (USB Implementers Forum, Inc). The organization is comprised of industry leaders like Intel, Microsoft, Compaq, LSI, Apple and Hewlett-Packard. It supports and adopts comprehensive specifications for all aspects of USB technology.Before USB came into existence, computers used serial and parallel ports to plug devices into computers and transfer data. Individual ports were used for peripherals such as keyboards, mice, joysticks and printers. Expansion cards and custom drivers were often required to connect the devices. Parallel ports transferred data at approximately 100 kilobytes per second, where as serial ports ranged from 115 to more than 450 kilobits per second. Some ports could not run simultaneously.The high volume of incompatibilities and the attempt to use multiple......

Marketing 3.0

...Marketing 3.0 Según la Real Academia Española, marketing es una voz inglesa que se traduce como mercadotecnia o mercadología. Este concepto concluye en el conjunto de principios y prácticas que buscan incrementar el comercio de mercancías, especialmente de la demanda. Coloquial y literalmente se le podría traducir como ‘mercadeando’. En la práctica, este concepto va mucho más allá de la simple comercialización de productos, el marketing según Philip Kotler (2002) es un proceso social y administrativo por el que las personas y los grupos satisfacen sus necesidades al crear e intercambiar bienes y servicios sustentadas en la satisfacción de las necesidades y deseos del target market. Importante destacar que Kotler es conocido como el padre del marketing moderno. La evolución de esta ciencia social ha atravesado tres grandes campos de expansión hasta el momento; el marketing 1.0 enfocado netamente al producto, el marketing 2.0 dirigido específicamente a los clientes y el último boom, marketing 3.0 orientado muy fuertemente al espíritu humano, el uso correctos de los recursos, la responsabilidad social y el cuidado del medio ambiente. Este documento busca explicar el nuevo concepto que viene innovando el campo del marketing y, como hipótesis se busca demostrar que el enfoque que toma el marketing 3.0 trata de cerrar el círculo de esta ciencia para englobarlo en un significado sólido y dándole una definición integral a este proceso social con las nuevas tendencias foco......

Nt1110 Usb 3.1

...The new USB 3.1 adds a 10 Gbps speed mode that uses a more efficient data encoding and will deliver more than twice the effective data of existing Super Speed USB over enhanced, fully backward compatible USB connectors and cables. The specification extends the existing Super Speed mechanical, electrical, protocol and hub definition while maintaining compatibility with existing USB 3.0 software stacks and device class protocols as well as with existing 5 Gbps hubs and devices and USB 2.0 products. In January 2013, the USB group had a press release revealing plans to update USB 3.0 to 10 Gbit/s, effectively putting it on par with Thunderbolt by mid-2013. The USB 3.1 specification was released introducing a faster transfer mode called "Super Speed USB 10 Gbps"; its logo features a Super speed (stylized as SUPERSPEED+) caption. The USB 3.1 standard increases the signaling rate to 10 Gbit/s, doubling that of USB 3.0, and reduces line encoding overhead to just 3% by changing the encoding scheme to 128b/132b. Though, some initial tests demonstrated usable transfer speeds of only 7.2 Gbit/s, suggesting a 30% overall overhead. The USB 3.1 standard is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. Using three power profiles of those defined in the USB Power Delivery Specification, it lets devices with larger energy demands request higher currents and supply voltages from compliant hosts – up to 2 A at 5 V (for a power consumption of up to 10 W), and optionally up to 5 A at either 12 V......

Some wanted to reject the term “Web 3.0” as too business-oriented; others felt that the vision in the article was only part of the larger Semantic Web vision, and still others felt that, whatever it was called, the Semantic Web’s arrival in the Business section of The New York Times reflected an important coming of age. With the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL) — the languages that power the Semantic Web — becoming standards and new technologies reaching maturity for embedding semantics in existing Web pages and querying RDF knowledge stores, something exciting is clearly happening in this area.

...Various discussion, opinions, and perception have been floating around especially in a forum such as PC magazine. According to Tech Encyclopedia, Web 3.0 is a nickname for Semantic Web. However, some defined as the other Semantic Web. As u heard it before and I have mentioned in the earlier posts, Semantic web is trying to develop a concept of transforming everything such as documents, emails, videos, images, etc into elements of a database. Hence it will provide precise and well-defined meaning for users.

Marketing 3.0

...changed. What’s changed is the context. At the Mumbai round of the Pitch CMO Summit 2010, held on November 16, keynote speaker Sanjay Behl, CEO, Reliance Big TV, explained how marketing had evolved over the years from the traditional 4Ps of the Nineties to a more contemporary approach, which was about People, Purpose, Perspective, Protection and Participation. Behl took the audience through the three phases of marketing – the pre-Nineties era (Marketing 1.0), the post Nineties era (Marketing 2.0), and the current 2010 era (Marketing 3.0). While the traditional 4Ps (Place, Product, Price, Promotion) were relevant in the era of Marketing 1.0, Marketing 2.0 was about People, Positioning, Productivity and Profit. “We saw the opening up of the economy in this phase, Exim policies were relaxed, there was rise in consumerism and the economy was booming. With all the growth opportunities, the focus for marketers was on ROI,” Behl pointed out. “Marketing 3.0 is what defines most brands and marketers do today,” he added. He then went on to explain the five biggest trends impacting Indian and global brands… 1- Touch world Press a button and get any information you want. There were 6.5 billion people having a mobile phone and almost one-third of the world was currently present on the Internet, explained Behl. “Data bandwidths are exploding, and it’s just not about penetration, which is increasing.
