Happy 20th Birthday USB! from Nov.15 1995 to Nov.15 2015

The father of the USB, Ajay Bhatt told us the story of usb’s birth.

Ajay Bhatt

Ajay Bhatt, from wikipedia, Ajay V. Bhatt is an Indian-American computer architect who helped define and develop several widely used technologies, including USB, AGP, PCI Express, Platform Power management architecture and various chipset improvements. And he is an Intel fellow.

Ajay Bhatt told the media about all of the story of the invertion of USB.“Anytime (my family) wanted to do something simple like print a letter for my daughter’s school, I would get a phone call from my wife that she just can’t print it,” Bhatt said. “She does something, but nothing happens to the printer.” It is a humble story.

And during the interview Ajay Bhatt told us why why it didn’t have a reversible connector.”We wanted to solve the problem with four pins and very few gates on our silicon and also four wires,” Bhatt said. “To make things flippable you need twice as many wires, that means twice the cost, and you need a lot more circuits. We could have done it but the cost of this would not have been acceptable to people.”

HP unveils USB-powered screen for laptops at CES 2013
Wednesday, January 09th, 2013 | Author: Elaine

HP has announced the USB-powered U160 portable monitor at CES 2013, potentially answering the prayers of sales reps who struggle to crowd people around an ultraportable laptop for presentations.

The U160 is a 15.6in display with a slightly old school resolution of 1,366 x 768, but its biggest benefits is how it works – getting both its power and graphical feed from a laptop’s USB ports drastically reduces the amount of cable needed to power a presentation.

The iPad Smart Cover-style case keeps it safe in transit, although its 1.5kg heft means it weighs almost as much as the average ultraportable on its own.

The price could prove appealing, though: the U160’s price in the USA will be $179, or roughly £110. It will go on sale later this month.
