A USB 3.0 standards document was released in November 2008. The 500-page document in PDF form together with its subsequent additions and corrections, is publicly available at this URL:

usb.org

Once again, this quasi-language:

USB3.0, USBIF are not yet released standards. USBIF is not related to the forum. Google may not yet be able to get the USBIF specifications, because they have not any website with the standards published.

is devoid of meaning. You needn't bother to explain. I'm sure anyone reading this forum is amused (or feels pity) at the pretension that something exists on planet Earth of technical interest that Google is not yet able to get, but that Arthur Tang is able to get, or which Arthur Tang knows and understands better than Google does.

Unfortunately, USBIF has multichannel capability, so that USB3.0 may not be widely implemented on Nov. release document.

Excellent! Dumped my remaining shares and outta here for good. $9 sounds like free money to me at this point. And at least whichever employees Oracle decides to keep around won't be working for IBM. I suspect this cultural digestion job, to the extent there is one, will be fairly smooth.

Bye folks, it's been real. Or maybe, unreal. What an astounding mess.

Best wishes, Charles.

For the interested investor, Ellison pulled a good one acquiring Peoplesoft. People suspected that Oracle did the arbitrageur themselves.

It may bear fruit to see how both Oracle stock and Java stock come out in the next few months. Or maybe even years?

Best to you, too. It's been quite a ride, but now it's over (except for the inevitable class-action).

LOL!!! I am going to miss you guys' sense of humor. I did call this buyout on a previous post. Kudo's to me!

Maybe we can regroup on the Oracle thread?
