USB 3 around the Corner


For all you SPEED freaks, stay on the look out for the NEW USB3. With transfer rates of the previous versions of usb being of: USB1 188 MB/s, USB2 transferring at 60MB/s, the new USB3 will be transferring At a whopping 600MB/s. Thats 10 fold over USB2. With Intel leading this, we're sure to get a kick out of this.

Nike+ & iPod Touch/iPhone


Looks like there is a lot of talk about the release of Nike+ to be used on the iPod Touch and the iPhone. The ups side I see out of this combination that that you really will not need a computer to upload your running logs to the internet. Using the 3G and the WiFi, you will be able to take advantage of these features and upload your logs instantly.

On the other hand, the idea of taking my iTouch to my runs does not excite me. Being bigger and "heavier", I really prefer my Nano. But just thinking that I will not need to hook up my Touch to the PC seems worth the while to me.

Debate is going on, on whether the iPhone is going to use its GPS capabilities to track the run and not use the Nike sensor in the shoe. Well, if it didn't need the sensor and it were going to use the GPS, then it wouldn't be Nike+ & iPhone would it? I would be just teh iPhone.

Still I am waiting eagerly till the product can be used with the iTouch.
