PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless PCI Express 4.0 is being designed with tablets in mind, according to standards-setting organization PCI Special Interest Group. The PCI-Express 4.0 bus will also go into PCs, servers and embedded devices. PCIe 4.0, will transfer data at up to 16 gigatransfers per second over copper wire. That is twice the speed of PCIe 3.0, which was finalized in late 2010 and is just reaching products.

"...up to 16 gigatransfers per second..."
Can anyone tell me how many bytes are in 1 normal transfer? Can 1 normal transfer be a movie and will this allow us to send 16 billion movies per second?

Seriously, the level of articles and especialy misleading headlines is quite high this week.

"The Personal Computer Is Dead" is an article that is not even about Personal computers.

"New ARM Dev Toolkit for Android Addresses Platform 'Hodgepodge'" had nothing to do with the "Android Hodgepodge"

and "PCI Express 4.0 Will Speed Up Tablets" ... really?
