How many USB ports are everyone using?

How many USB ports do you use at any one time?

I have 7 on the go at anyone time.

I have these devices plugged in:
Canon photo printer;
3 HDDs;
a graphics tablet;
iPhone and
a Microsoft Sidewinder Joystick (from 1997 or something )

I would also like to know if you who are able to are going to upgrade to USB 3.0 any time soon?
