Deanjo: really wishes someone would bring out a AMD processor motherboard with more then 6 sata connectors
Deanjo: ponders if USB 3.0 will make his USB fan spin faster and his USB Beer cooler, well cooler.
redeeman: there still needs to be created an usb fountain
redeeman: seriously, everything else is usb these days
redeeman: i remember last year at christmas, in some shop, a guy asked "do you have any usb christmas decorations"
redeeman: and as i heard that, i thought "wtf is that guy thinking?!"
redeeman: and the store-guy said "sure, right this way"
redeeman: that was a very fucked up moment
Deanjo: Ya, USB should be renamed to Universal Power Plug
Deanjo: We need a USB powered Microwave that fits in 5 1/4 drive bays :P
redeeman: or a real oven
redeeman: or hotplate
redeeman: so you can make a rasher of bacon
redeeman: i'd buy that!
Deanjo: A USB cash machine would be nice
redeeman: usb printers does exist...

redeeman: and the store owner was not happy when i told him
Deanjo: With the price of ink though you better make it a big value lol
redeeman: he checked all bills, lol
