Using Fibre optics is a good idea for moving massive chunks of data!

I have heard ages ago that they were talking about it, but now that I see pics, looks like it's going to happen finally.

Will this possibly make USB a faster medium than standard Hard drive access?...

Nice though, since it'll only be a simple add in card. No replacing motherboards
Well, unless you want one with them built in.

and in a year or two Apple will bring out Firewire 2.0 Fibre Optic

but it will be interesting to see what data speeds will be supported by the actuall hardware - since i can imagine there would be a few extra driver chips onboard...

Woohoo!!! Fiber optic links!!!!! That's what I'm talking about. Now, it's the CPU's turn. Optic link to everything!! The way of the future.

My next PC build will have it, hehe. 2008, wow. Imagine external hard drives using this link. Oh wait, hard drives haven't advanced that much . I sense bottleneck!!!! The problem is other devices need to be able to take advantage of this new fiber connection.
