The USB Port: Happy Birthday!


The USB port is 21 years old this year.  And unbelievably it’s still on mainstream computers.

A new version: USB-C, is edging out the old model as laptops are quickly becoming tablets.

21 years…  Windows 95 was the first operating system designed for it.  Apple’s first iMac helped make it a household feature.

The first USB had a data speed 1.5 Megabits per-second.  Today USB 3.1 is over 5 Gigabits per-second.

So give your USB a hug- for this may be the last birthday it ever has…
