...difference between GB and Gb.
Let's pretend for a moment that the suffix was correctly capitalised. Was that so hard? But you feel it necessary to write personal insults because of a misused "shift"? Wow. Definitely appropriate reaction.
[RE: 5 wires]... Mini-USB
Yes, that would be a plug, note I said "wires". That 5th pin (if it's present at all) is always connected to ground in reality and never appears as a wire. It's the one whose role is being replaced by a protocol change in USB 3.0 because nobody ever implemented it. The cable itself always has 4 wires.
[RE: disingenuous]... perhaps you don't understand the word?
The author knows a reasonable amount about Intel involvement, including their presence in the USB working group. Despite knowing this, you are of the opinion that the author genuinely avoided learning that Intel were the originators?
Disingenuous: Adjective: Not candid or sincere, typically by pretending that one knows less about something than one really does.
Still seems applicable.
I am quite confident you'll reply again and am looking forward to reading it. I promise I'll make an effort to check back too, though I have a tendency to lose interest with those who can't tell the difference between wit and Tourette's Syndrome.
