Submission + - New Powered USB Part 3: Response to Slashdot

Patrick McFarland writes: "I've written a third, and hopefully final part, to the originally two part Why Powered USB Is Needed article that was featured on Slashdot three days ago, and this response is pretty much due to Slashdot users asking smart questions and poking a few holes in my argument.
