What is USB? United Streaming Bargainer? Underaged Sporting Bicycle? (Those aren’t ports, are they?) WHAT IS USB? Congragulations, you’ve experienced the USB Sydrome (joke). But what is USB mean?

USB stands for “Universal Serial Bus”. It is a port that is widely used for connecting objects. Some of the most frequent objects that use USB ports (most of them) are:

  • Cameras
  • Keyboards
  • Mouses
  • Overheads
  • many more

This is a FOCUS article. Look forward to more FOCUS articles.
