    Angry Aaaarrrggghhh! Don't say it like that!

    I was going to tweet this, but it's got me riled now for some unknown reason. I've just been watching a couple of reviews on YouTube and more than one of them keeps referring to USB 2 as 'USB two-point-oh'.
    I mean why? It's not like there was ever a 2.1 or 2.2 revision! And it sounds rubbish.
    I'm so not looking forwards to encountering 'USB three-point-oh' as a spoken word in the very near future




    And breathe!

    It is weird I agree. Although there was a USB 1 and 1.1, I never heard anyone call it 1.1.

    You'll be happy to know there is a USB 3.1 however This increases speeds to 10Gbit/s from USB 3's standard 4Gbit/s.

    At least they do some point releases! If we were following Firefox's numbering scheme, we'd be on USB 23 by now, if you take into account all the little updates in USB 2.

    I feel your pain - I'm getting in to electronics at the moment and the US videos pronouncing solder "sod-er" drives me mad!
