USB 3.0 specified

The USB 3.0 specification has at last been ratified (last Monday).

This promises speeds 10x greater than USB 2.0. Chipsets are likely to be available next year (2009) while consumer devices will follow in 2010.

Microsoft has said that USB 3.0 is unlikely to be in Windows 7 when it's released (and may not be included in Vista at all).
