Default USB3.0 forks as industry gangs up on Intel

WELL, IT LOOKS like you and I are going to be in for a world of incompatibility and pain in the coming year, USB3.0 is forking. Intel is playing power games again, the industry is going around it, and we all lose.

Word has come to us that most of the industry is not going to wait for Intel, and is forming their own consortium to do it themselves. The two standards won't be compatible of course and both will be called USB3.0, so when you buy a PC or a device, they won't necessarily work together. If you remember the broken mess that was USB1.0, you have a fair idea of what is in store.
