USB 3.0

- Faster: 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and six times faster than FireWire 800

- Greater power efficiency: New interrupt driven protocol optimizes power management.

- Better Power Output: Power output bump to 900 milliamps from 100 milliamps allows more devices to be charged faster via USB.

- Backward Compatible: New connectors and cables will work with work with devices running the older USB 2.0

The new connectors are not backwards compatible I heard, but that's a minor thing for me actually. Got hardly any usb stuff. Real products coming in 2010 probably!
