Android installations should be independent from device manufacturer support

Android is clearly the most widespread operating system if we consider that just about every user in the developed world has at least a mobile phone and a tablet, both of them likely to run on Google's platform. Despite all the advantages brought by an unified software platform, not the same can be said about the hardware capability.

Faster storage impact on integration and features in computers

Storage has traditionally been seen as the element that is the slowest in the chain of automatic devices that can retrieve and save information. While this is true, the development of SSDs has blurred the line between slow and fast storage, placing into question why there is any need for RAM or other specific components of the past.

USB 3.1 improvements over USB 3.0

USB 3.0 was launched in 2008 and it brought many improvements in terms of capability, especially for devices that needed higher performance such as high capacity storage and high performance networking. It also brought the possibility of using external videocards or other peripherals from the professional sector that were traditionally located inside computers.  Overall, USB 3.0 brought a large performance enhancement while still being backward compatible with USB 2.0 in many ways. What could USB 3.1, introduced in 2013, bring as the next revision of the USB standard?

Benefits and opportunities of USB 3.0 over USB 2.0 for computers and devices

The USB standard has had an important evolution, going as far back as 1997-1998 with the first iteration known as USB 1 and coming close to standard that was around until 2008-2010 for USB 2.0. The USB 3.0 standard is not the latest in terms of performance and features as USB 3.1 was released in 2013. However, the 3.0 standard is very important as it sets a minimum level of expectations for an USB 3 compatible label product.
