God I'm beginning to hate these Apple gimps..every bloody new release of a technology is greeted with "this is crap--Apple's way is much better" etc etc.
At this stage I wish they would crawl into a dark hole and die as painful a death as possible. And when they do die Hell is where they have to use linux/windows for all eternity :)
Anyway roll on USB3. 10 times faster than usb2...it's then we'll see flash drives steaming ahead of HD's and becoming the norm in laptops/desktops etc.
