    Contrary to our previous article here, Intel today informed that it will make the USB 3.0 specification freely available for anyone during the second half of this year. The specification will be made available under a contract that doesn't require royalty payments.

    to be honest, Intel said as much in the original post but it kind of got trampled on by the "ZOMG intel sucks" hyberbole that always accompanies these kind of posts

    So I guess they aren't that incompetent after all. Having several USB 3.0 compilations would suck big time.

    Because some people thrive on negativity.

    Funny how anything that comes with royalty rights pales in comparison to those without. Seems they might finally figure out what "Standards" are for one of these days.

    Good stuff.
