Windows 7: 10 technologies that will transform PCs in 2015 and beyond

Hi there

A nice development might be when Wifi connections are fast enough is for the future USB hardware not to be connected by cable AT ALL. A central receiver could be on the Mobo and to connect your device you could have some type of system like setting up those old "universal remotes" where you entered a number or let the device scan until it found a match.

The Bluetooth protocol isn't robust or anything like as fast enough for this purpose. OK for mice/keyboards and headphones but that's about it.

I think whatever device(s) we have we probably have too many cables, dongles etc etc - any system or protocol that could get rid of these would be a winner in my book. As for the number of codes to use -- there's a common standard already which has more than enough combinations for even the fastest technological future - well into the THIRD millennium. 128 bit UUID / 32 Byte alphanumeric string.

Actually, some USB hardware is already going wireless. Printers have been doing it for years. At least one scanner I know of (Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500) can be connected by USB 3.0 or Wi-Fi.

Hi there

Printers are one thing - even NAS drives often don't have to supply data at the rate an internal connection would need especially if the NAS was simply used for streaming audio or video.-- however the idea is great and if it can be speeded up then it's got to be a winner.

Is that news?
Or is it simply what we've expected (and received) year by year over the last several decades ... and we can expect more of the same in the future?

A few of the items are of interest: new USB, and wireless displays.

But I don't see how any of this can fly under the title "The PC's future is so bright, you gotta wear shades".
Your reply, highlighted in bold, beat me to it...

Even the PCIe storage isn't new, my MacBookPro from last year has PCIe storage. Not at the 2GB level, just 750MB actual performance level.

The article incorrectly states the SATA 6 transfer rate as 750MB. The actual maximum transfer rate is 600MB, when the 8b/10b encoding is taken into account. In another word, 20% of the nominal transfer rate is taken by the encoding.

And really... The new USB cable is such an advanced technology? Even if it is, you cannot use it until you get a new system with the "advanced USB technology" port on the box. In the near future, you get a USB flash drive with the redesigned interface, it'll also come with an adapter to use it with your old computer. That's just great...

The future WiFi based USB connection would need power to communicate with the receiver on the motherboard. The power could be provided via wireless charging and/or via battery. In the latter case, it better have an on/off switch. Otherwise, it would be possible to download the content of the WiFi USB, while it is in your computer bag or in your packet.

For good quality sound, the wire beats Bluetooth any day...
