As reported at C|net, USB4 is ready to go.

USB4 is done, the group developing the next version of the immensely successful USB connector technology said Tuesday. USB4 doubles speeds compared to today's fastest USB 3.2 by incorporating Intel's speedy Thunderbolt technology that you already see on high-end laptops and peripherals. The USB Implementers Forum announced the completion of the technical specification Tuesday, a move that frees hardware and software engineers to get cracking building the actual products to support it.

Today's USB 3.2, which enables data transfer speeds up to 20 gigabits per second, is still something of a rarity; most of us have earlier versions of the technology that works at 5Gbps or 10Gbps. USB4 promises a speed boost to 40Gbps, helpful for things like using multiple external displays or fetching files from external hard drives.

What is the Serial Bus equivalent of, "Looks like I'm going to have to buy the White Album again."?

    I know it would happen host-side sometimes on my system. On a couple of occasions I listening to the "conversation", and I could hear my transmit characters go out on typing, stop typing and get a carrier almost immediately, then response would pick up and the remaining characters would display but also instantly including the host computer's response (yet other times there'd be no buffer and all my text would send, delay, then host's response). TRS-80 M III, 300 Baud Modem I. Sometimes I miss those days.... []
    I very vaguely remember parallelling a phone after the modem but before the wall to do that listening.... I remember ordinarily I'd dial the number, and as soon the other side picked up I'd flip to "Orig" for Originate and hang up the receiver.

    This sig for rent.
