Thx  ;) It is IMHO a good idea. Also, on similar topic, the Intel Thunderbolt interface (many times more expensive that USB, so basically very rare) get soon into v3. Doubling the speed from 20 to 40GBi/s (5GBi/s from USB v3 seems quite low now, right?), supporting DisplayPort 1.2 (so in short 4k resolution in 60Hz thru it can go) and USB 3.0 and even HDMI 2.0 standards transfered over it.

The connector get smaller (think of ultrabooks) and yet still allegedly take 100W of charging. Let's hope so. But no sign about optical connection, so Intel probably plan to run this speeds still using cooper - and if the USB v3 sensitivity to EMI is any indication, then the speeds will not be nearly as good, as promised:

...if serious shielding is not in place. Let's hope Intel prove me wrong :)
