What kind of devices could you foresee becoming available after USB3 is on all the new computers? Will there be some kind of external device revolution now that USB3 will be full-duplex, high speed and higher powered (provide more power to external devices)?

With my experience of USB3 so far, I'm not too hopeful.

But we shall see. External GPUs are about all I can think of, and they're already covered by Thunderbolt...

Judging by this thread, USB 3-to-2 converters Sad

A more positive idea would be to use USB3 for all internal connections, banishing SATA, IDE, PCI, PSU spaghetti and whatever else to the stone age.
