there are far too many port connectors already, this is just another move into obsolescence…
plenty of cameras and gps units still use mini-b connectors. just got used to the 3.0 connectors on the external hdd case…
I’m not sure flash drives have gotten the read/write performance to justify a 3.1 spec just yet… and many portable devices are NOWHERE near ready!!
Micro usb will be around for at least another 5 years in popularity.
