I use a bluetooth mouse and a bluetooth printer, never had any problems.

It must be a huge success then if you have used it. I stand corrected.

A company called WisAIR were developing our wireless USB radio. While we are still interested it's been at least 2 years since we first got involved and to be honest I do not see it going much further. 802.11n was a flop and wisely a lot of companies are looking elsewhere (consumer devices rather than hard drives). It is an official standard.

The most interesting thing about USB3 is actually under the hood. They are throwning away the ARSE that was bulk class and mass storage and switching to something with less latency and less overhead more like SCSI and Firewire which supports command queuing and multiple outstanding commands.

USB3.0 is a totally new physical layer. It remains backwards compatible by having an entire USB2.0HS built in (using different wires in the new cables)!

Here is a picture of the prototype USB3 hosts and some cables.

Wireless networking for internet access is fine surely? At least while internet access speed remains below the average wireless speed.

Even if you had bluetooth running on your Amiga and could connect your keyboard and mouse they wouldn't work in games! (just like Amiga USB keyboards and mice don't work in games)

when it works it's not so bad.

At work we have around 90 sites linked via 10MB wireless links. All line of site but the problem comes when the trees are in full bloom - drops out like a tomato. It's alright in winter though!
